Sessional Orders: Debate on the Address (12 Mar 1974)

Mr Ken Lomas: As the first back-bench Member to speak from this side of the House, may I offer my sincere congratulations to you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, on your high appointment. I am sure that you will carry on in the best traditions of that office. I was very interested in the comments of the Leader of the Liberal Party. There was not much criticism of the fact, which should be understood, that the...

Animal Welfare (14 Dec 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: The House is aware that over 150 hon. Members signed an Early Day Motion last Session which called on the Government to set up a research institute to inquire into alternatives which would not involve the use of animals. I am sure that that motion would have had the fullest support of all hon. Members. Everything that the hon. Member for Preston, North (Miss Holt) has said has been correct. I...

Yorkshire and Humberside (23 Nov 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: I beg to move, That this House, while noting some temporary improvement in the Yorkshire and Humberside Region, and the limited success of the environmental drive to clean up the county, is still disturbed that many areas continue to suffer unemployment levels above the national average and earnings below the national average; is concerned about the manpower drift from the coalmining...

Yorkshire and Humberside (23 Nov 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: Of course it is doing well, and it could do better if we had some encouragement from the Government. Why not spend a little more time and thought, and perhaps a little more money, on cleaning our rivers and opening up our inland waterways, not only as a means of freight transport, which they could well be—I think that 3 per cent. of our freight is carried by inland waterways—but as a...

Yorkshire and Humberside (23 Nov 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: I have already pointed out that tourism ranks among the top six major industries of Yorkshire. That is why I say that far more attention should be given to the tourist industry than we are giving at present. It is fair to say, on a more sombre note, however, that all is not well with Yorkshire. In my opinion, the Government's inability to attract new industries to take the place of dying and...

Yorkshire and Humberside (23 Nov 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: The hon. Member is talking nonsense. I spoke optimistically about the future of Yorkshire and I believe that there is every hope for it. However, is not the hon. Gentleman ashamed of his own Government and of his own local authority, who have not built a single house in 1973? Is not that something about which to be ashamed? We are proud of Yorkshire and believe that it has a future, and I am...

Yorkshire and Humberside (23 Nov 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: I should be grateful if the hon. Gentleman would quote chapter and verse on that. We have never said that. We have stated a number of criteria on public ownership, including whether there are obscene profits, whether a company is dependent on the State for its business and whether it represents all or most of a particular sector. We have never said that we would take over ICI. We said that...

Yorkshire and Humberside (23 Nov 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: By the Government.

Yorkshire and Humberside (23 Nov 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: After the next General Election it will be.

Yorkshire and Humberside (23 Nov 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: Will the Minister confirm that the present run down in the wool and textile industry is in line with what Atkins said, or are we exceeding that run down? What is being done about that?

Yorkshire and Humberside (23 Nov 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is it fair of the Minister to talk about the shortage of skilled labour, when between January and September 1973 only 77,200 local authority starts were made, compared with 202,159 in 1967? That was not due to shortage.

Yorkshire and Humberside (23 Nov 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: Yes, indeed, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I beg to ask leave to withdraw the motion.

NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE REORGANISATION BILL [Lords]: Occupational Health Scheme (12 Jun 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: My hon. Friend the Member for Woolwich, East (Mr. Mayhew) always brings to these debates a knowledge of mental problems, and the right sort of emphasis was placed on this subject in his speech. I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Plymouth, Sutton (Dr. David Owen) that this is a major subject to be considered. The hon. Member for Aylesbury (Mr. Raison) asked whether the principle...

NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE REORGANISATION BILL [Lords]: Neighbourhood Health Councils (12 Jun 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: I know that I am sitting on the horns of dilemma, and may well be close to being out of order, but it will not be for more than three or four minutes. This is the only way in which it is possible to express, on Report, my view, which I sought to put over in Committee during many arguments and discussions, on the composition of the various types of authorities. It has been ruled by you, Sir,...

NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE REORGANISATION BILL [Lords]: Neighbourhood Health Councils (12 Jun 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: I accept entirely what the Minister says but I believe that it does not go far enough. Both my union and I say that the trade unions and workers in the National Health Service should be represented on the district councils and others as of right, and should not just come together in some other way.

NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE REORGANISATION BILL [Lords]: Local Advisory Committees (12 Jun 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am in some confusion. I agree with what has been said about Amendment No. 13. Any substantial number of people in the National Health Service must include the large body of ancillary workers, so why we have decided in Amendment No. 14 to add yet another section to the élitism which has been mentioned and divorce it from the theatre attendants and porters I do not understand. It seems a...

Orders of the Day — Cruelty to Animals Act 1876 (Amendment) Bill (11 May 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: On this occasion, we can truly say that no party political issue is involved. It is a pity that the Liberal benches are empty. Perhaps the long-haired Liberals or Lovers of Liverpool are making hay elsewhere. The Bill is a simple one, which provides that no experiment on a living animal shall be performed under the authority thereof if the purpose of the experiment can be achieved by...

Orders of the Day — Cruelty to Animals Act 1876 (Amendment) Bill (11 May 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am sure that the whole House has been moved and touched by the story that my hon. Friend related. Does he agree that what we are trying to do, at least all-partywise, is to persuade the Government to establish a research institute to look into possible alternatives? If we did this, surely it would go a long way to meeting many of his points. However, if we do nothing about it, nothing will...

Orders of the Day — Cruelty to Animals Act 1876 (Amendment) Bill (11 May 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: The hon. Gentleman is talking a load of nonsense. There is a difference between 4 million and 5½ million. It amounts to 1½ million extra animals. He has not addressed himself to the Bill. It provides that no experiment on a living animal shall be performed under the authority thereof if the purpose of the experiment can be achieved by alternative means Let the hon. Member address himself to...

Public Servants (Local Authority Membership) (16 Mar 1973)

Mr Ken Lomas: No one has argued from the Opposition benches that town clerks and borough engineers should serve on local authorities. Basically, we are concerned with employees of local authorities, not with people who hold official jobs.
