Orders of the Day — Clause 81 (17 Jul 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: I speak as a sponsored candidate for the National Union of Public Employees. Is the right hon. Gentleman saying that a dustman or an office clerk will exert a tremendous influence on the affairs of a local authority? I implore the right hon. Gentleman to grow up.

Orders of the Day — Clause 81 (17 Jul 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: I have often heard the right hon. Member for Crosby (Mr. Graham Page) speak with conviction, but tonight his was a pathetic performance, and that was because his heart was not in what he was saying. He did not mean what he said. In a democratic society, those who work for a local authority have the right to represent the people in their community on that authority. There is a case for...

Schedule 1: Value Added Tax — Registration (11 Jul 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: It does not matter whether we are pro-Market or anti-Market. I am in favour of joining Europe, and have made my position quite clear. I think we shall go in. Whatever our views, the Chancellor has the opportunity to decide what taxes shall be applied to charities or any other bodies. The real point has nothing to do with being in or out of the Market. We should try to find out from the...

Business of the House (18 May 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: Has the attention of the Leader of the House been drawn to Early-Day Motion No. 279, which stands in my name, which is an all-party Motion which has been on the Order Paper for 28 consecutive sitting days? The Motion has been signed by 108 hon. Members from all three major parties.

European Security and Co-Operation (2 May 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am grateful to have the opportunity to raise—

European Security and Co-Operation (2 May 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am grateful to you Mr. Speaker. I am glad to have this opportunity to raise what to me is an important matter. On Sunday I fly to Brussels as Rapporteur to the Education, Cultural Affairs and Information Committee of the North Atlantic Assembly to take part in the committee meetings prior to the plenary sessions to be held in Bonn in November of this year. One subject with which my...

European Communities Bill (26 Apr 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: Will my hon. Friend tell me under what regulations, or whatever it might be, tobacco comes?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (20 Apr 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am sure the hon. Member for the Isle of Thanet (Mr. Rees-Davies) will forgive me if I do not follow him to the races. He has made a very pertinent point deserving of consideration. I have given a promise that I shall not exceed 10 minutes, and I intend to adhere to that. In view of that it is not my intention to range over all the economic problems and the economic state of the nation...

Orders of the Day — Employment (28 Feb 1972)

Mr Ken Lomas: Mr. Kenneth Lomas (Huddersfield, West) rose—

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (29 Nov 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: The hon. Member for Birmingham, Yardley (Mr. Coombs) made a competent and courageous speech, though I feel that he spoiled it towards the end by trying to dot too many i's and cross too many t's. Nevertheless, we on this side of the House recognise the sincerity with which he expressed his views. The reason why I intervene in this debate is that I was in Belfast all day on Friday of last...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (29 Nov 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: I was not referring to the hon. Gentleman's speech when I said that. I was putting forward my own opinion based on what I saw and heard during my visit and on what I have heard in recent months. When I was in Belfast, I heard of examples which came not from Irish people, north or south of the Border, but from English people running factories in the Province. They gave the examples of some...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (29 Nov 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am prepared to say that if there are people on the Protestant or Catholic sides who are suspected of or likely to perform acts of atrocity, the security forces have every right to take those people and hold them. Once they are held, however, be they Roman Catholic or Protestant, they have the right to be charged with the crimes that they are supposed to have committed. In Belfast, I saw...

Orders of the Day — Northern Ireland (29 Nov 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: Yes. I spoke to both Catholic and Protestant and some people said that they believed in a united Ireland provided that Ireland entered the Commonwealth. That is open to argument. Some Catholics have said that because of the I.R.A. they wished to remain under the protection of the United Kingdom. I take the view that the minority is entitled to argue its rights, but it has no right to inflict...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Woollen Textiles (Origin Marking) (15 Nov 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is the Minister aware that the disappearance of the mark of origin will, first of all, facilitate dishonest trading, and, secondly, will allow some kind of deceptive description? Does he not agree that it would be detrimental both to the consumer and to the industry, and that it is imperative that the Government should look at the matter and not leave it to a Private Member's Bill?

Orders of the Day — European Communities (25 Oct 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: This is not the occasion for arguing the case for going into Europe or for staying out of it. We have all made up our minds. What we are doing in this debate is saying why we take the attitudes that we do. It is our duty to explain to our constituents and to our party as well as to Members of this House why we believe, or do not believe, that the country should join the Common Market on the...

Orders of the Day — European Communities (25 Oct 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: There is no reason why we should. That is begging the question. We are not turning our backs on them. Here we have an opportunity of going into a community which will enable us to begin to formulate the policies in which we believe. For far too long the people of Europe have been divided by class and nationality. Britain, who has lost her Imperial rôle, has a rôle to play inside Europe. We...

National Health Service (Consultative Document) (1 Jul 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: I begin by declaring an interest as a member of the National Union of Public Employees, which recruits a considerable number of members from inside the National Health Service. Some of the comments which I shall make will reflect the union's viewpoint, and it is right that the union's views should be taken note of by the Secretary of State when he brings forward the proposed White Paper. I am...

National Health Service (Consultative Document) (1 Jul 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: I hope I may now be allowed to continue. I cannot understand the mentality of hon. Members such as the hon. Member for Ilford, South (Mr. Cooper), in calling a count, unless they do not want to discuss the important subject of the National Health Service. It is ridiculous to interrupt a speech and waste the time of the House in that way; though I have seen the hon. Member concerned behave in...

Business of the House (24 Jun 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the last time we discussed the National Health Service, on the question of increased charges, we had about 2½ hours for debate? Does not he think that it is wrong that we should finish at seven o'clock next Thursday the debate on a very important document which many hon. Members wish to discuss? Will he reconsider the matter? We on this side are fully...

Experiments on Animals (11 Jun 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: My information is that there are between 13,000 and 14,000 licensees, not 9,000, in round terms. Can the hon. and learned Gentleman cast any light on that matter?
