Experiments on Animals (11 Jun 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: I should like to say how much I enjoyed and wholeheartedly agreed with the speech of the hon. Member for Gillingham (Mr. Burden). I pay tribute to the Under-Secretary for what I thought was a clear and thoughtful speech. I can well understand, on the other hand, his reluctance to say whether the Government intend to legislate, because I find myself in a similar position. The Littlewood...

Experiments on Animals (11 Jun 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am most grateful to the hon. Gentleman. Later in the article, Dr. Goldman posed this question: To this observer at least, some of the experiments summarised at the beginning of this article seem to need justifying. How many contribute anything of importance to scientific knowledge? Even if some knowledge has been gained, are we justified in submitting animals to such techniques as electric...

Experiments on Animals (11 Jun 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: I accept that. The National Anti-Vivisection Society believes in total abolition eventually. It is composed not of cranks or misfits but of genuine people who are deeply concerned about animals and the things that are happening to them. I am sure that they are prepared to accept that this must be a step-by-step process and that the matter cannot be dealt with by waving a magic wand. I hope...

Orders of the Day — Tobacco (Health Hazards) Bill (7 May 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: I take it that the hon. Gentleman is saying, and I agree with him, that it is better to have a voluntary agreement than an ill-conceived, ill-thought-out and badly drafted Bill and that a voluntary agreement between the companies and the Government is infinitely preferable to any kind of legislation. Is that the point the hon. Gentleman is making?

Orders of the Day — Tobacco (Health Hazards) Bill (7 May 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: The hon. Gentleman's party are in favour of voluntary agreements, not only on industrial relations but on the subject of smoking.

Orders of the Day — Second Reading Committee (28 Apr 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: On a point of order. I am sure that the hon. and learned Member does not wish to treat the Committee in a discourteous way, but it seems to me that to say we must wait some time before we get the Statutes about which we are to talk is quite wrong. The best course of action would be for the Committee to be adjourned until these are available. How can we discuss the main principles of the Bill...

Experiments on Living Animals (31 Mar 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am grateful for the opportunity to raise this matter at such an early hour. I am sorry that there is no one on the Treasury Bench at the moment to answer the debate, but no doubt that will be put right in due course. I begin by pointing out to hon. Members that before this 30-minute debate is over there will have been 300 experiments on live animals in this country. In 1960 the number of...

Experiments on Living Animals (31 Mar 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: It is for these reasons that I suggest that there is a need to establish a research institute to study and develop methods not including the use of animals. I believe that the establishment of such an institute would be welcomed by scientists and the general public. Hon. Members and especially the right hon. Lady know as well as anyone that there is tremendous concern about animals, and that...

Experiments on Living Animals (31 Mar 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: The right hon. Lady tonight has read from a brief and not spoken from her heart. I think she will agree with me that we have to do something about the position which we have in this country and experimentation with animals. The Council of Europe is on record as proving that the Soviet Union, Germany, Finland, the United States are ahead of us on this, and I am very upset that the right hon....

Metrication (22 Mar 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am extremely grateful to the hon. Member for Shipley (Mr. Fox) for raising this issue. Incidentally, he was a worthy opponent to me in 1966, and I very much welcome him to the House. I endorse much of what he said tonight. We should have from the Government of the day, whichever Government it is, a clear undertaking about where we stand on the subject of metrication, certainly in relation...

Economic and Industrial Policy (18 Feb 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: Will not the hon. Gentleman concede that the previous Government at least sought to do something about prices, whereas the present Government have done nothing? Does he not accept also that, by attacking the public sector, the Government are destroying their credibility in expecting the ordinary individual to accept the policy which they are pursuing?

Economic and Industrial Policy (18 Feb 1971)

Mr Ken Lomas: Fourteen pounds a week.

Orders of the Day — Prison Workshops (Manufactured Goods) (23 Nov 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am grateful to the hon. Member for Bournemouth, East and Christchurch (Mr. Cordle) for giving me 60 seconds of the time in this debate to raise a constituency point. I raise the point on behalf of Mr. Eric Whittaker, the Managing Director of the Crompton Manufacturing Company, in Huddersfield. His firm, he tells me, is likely to be affected if this scheme is allowed to go through. There...

Orders of the Day — Prison Workshops (Manufactured Goods) (23 Nov 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: Yes. We should recognise that in prisons we have captive employees, whereas in industry the people go there to do a certain job of work. There is a fundamental difference. I hope that the Home Office will give very careful consideration to the points which have been raised in this debate by the hon. Member for Bournemouth, East and Christchurch. I hope that these points will get a full...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Pensioners (Earnings Rule) (20 Jul 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: Will the hon. Gentleman tell us whether the suggestion outlined and embodied in the proposals in the Conservative manifesto is yet another promise which we know will not be fulfilled?

Hon. Member for Mid-Ulster (20 Jul 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. I wonder whether you would tell the House where the responsibility lies? Is it with you? Is it with the Home Secretary? Or is it with the officials of the House? The House is confused and we would very much like to know, through you, to whom we can put questions on this issue.

Orders of the Day — National Health and Social Services (13 Jul 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: I fail to understand the hon. Lady's argument. First she speaks of this one-nation idea, but in the next breath she speaks of a privileged class and of treatment that the ordinary individual in the street cannot afford. Those who do not have the money get second-class treatment, but they can have first-class treatment if they can pay. That is an ideology that I and, I am quite certain, every...

Orders of the Day — National Health and Social Services (13 Jul 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: The hon. Member for Kensington, South (Sir B. Rhys-Williams) began by asking the Opposition to drop the partisan tone. The whole of his speech showed perfectly clearly the wide gulf between the Opposition and the Government on the National Health Service. The majority of hon. Gentlemen on the benches opposite do not understand the National Health Service because they do not use it. Hon....

Orders of the Day — National Health and Social Services (13 Jul 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: I will come to those in a moment. I want to ask the party opposite a series of questions and to underline what my hon. Friend the Member for Halifax (Dr. Summerskill) said. We have the right to ask those questions, especially in view of the speech of the hon. Member for Melton (Miss Pike), who exposed the heart of Tory philosophy and spelt out what it means to be a Conservative and what is...
