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

Mr Ken Lomas: If my right hon. Friend the Member for Blackburn (Mrs. Castle) and my right hon. Friend the Member for Cardiff, West (Mr. George Thomas) say in this debate that they hate prescription charges and will vote against them in future, we will welcome them back as two sinners who repenteth. I cannot help feeling that, if we had stuck to our principles, we would be in a better position to fight the...

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

Mr Ken Lomas: The two cannot be equated. I thought that the scheme we had mind before the election was reasonably fair and just after all the compromises had been made. It meant that a person on the average wage at the end of the period came out with a pretty good pension. Under the scheme introduced by the Conservative Party this would not have applied. But it does not alter the fact that it was, and...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Budget (7 Jul 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he intends to introduce his first Budget.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Budget (7 Jul 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the whole country is awaiting with interest the first Tory Budget? Are we to assume that, in spite of all the talk of economic crises and possible devaluation, it can wait for a considerable period of time, or is it that the Chancellor of the Exchequer has stopped believing what his own party leader said during the General Election?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Selective Employment Tax (7 Jul 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer when he intends to introduce measures to implement his policy regarding selective employment tax and direct taxation; and what are his proposals on maintaining the revenue.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Selective Employment Tax (7 Jul 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: Does not the Chancellor agree that a reduction of, say, 6d. in direct tax and abolition of S.E.T. would amount to around £800 million? How can he take that out of revenue and maintain the social services at their present standard without imposing additional taxation? Has he value-added tax in mind?

Education Bill (22 Apr 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is it not a fact that the House as a whole took a decision on the Education Bill in favour of comprehensive education? Is it not also a fact that the Opposition, by cunning, conniving devices sought to defeat the Government—

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Future Structure) (23 Mar 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: It is with great pleasure that I follow the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Reigate (Sir J. Vaughan-Morgan), who has made a very thoughtful and interesting contribution to the debate. My pleasure is redoubled because, not many months ago, we followed each other around the South Pacific area when we had the opportunity to look at hospitals in Samoa, Fiji and Tonga. Thank goodness, Tonga is...

Transport (Flockton by-Pass) (17 Feb 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: I endorse what my hon. Friend the Member for Huddersfield, East (Mr. J. P. W. Mallalieu) has said. Although Flockton is not within my constituency, it nevertheless affects a tremendous number of people in my constituency. I place on record a letter which I received from the Town Clerk of Huddersfield and which emphasises what my hon. Friend has said: You will recall that I wrote to you in...

Transport (Flockton by-Pass) (17 Feb 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is not my hon. Friend aware that the scheme has been put forward for the last five years and that the arguments in favour of a by-pass have been advanced not only by Huddersfield County Borough Council but by the West Riding County Council, that they have asked for a by-pass at Flockton every year since 1965 and that they await only the sanction of the Ministry? Will he not take action and do...

CALDERDALE WATER BILL (By Order) (29 Jan 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: I begin by saying how much I agree with part of what the right hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton (Mr. Turton) said about the urgent need for this House to give serious consideration to a national water policy. That is absolutely crucial and vital, but here we are dealing with an immediate problem which will affect a tremendous number of people for the next three or four years. My hon. Friend...

CALDERDALE WATER BILL (By Order) (29 Jan 1970)

Mr Ken Lomas: I accept my right hon. Friend's point, but I am assured that that part of the valley would not be affected. My right hon. Friend said that the only reason for the Bill and the creation of the dam was the exporting of water. We must abandon such attitudes. Areas in the West Riding have supplied other areas, not with water—a natural asset—but with the coal that their people dug from the...

Prayers: Amusement Arcades (22 Jul 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: With your permission, Mr. Speaker, and that of the House, I wish to present a Petition, signed by 3,340 constituents of the County Borough of Huddersfield and the Urban District of Kirkburton, who are concerned about the growth of amusement arcades and the urgent need for greater control. The Petitioners pray that Her Majesty's Government do three things: One, to introduce legislation to...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment and Productivity: Wages Councils (22 May 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what consultation she has had about the wages council's proposals of the Royal Commission on Trade Unions; and if she will make a statement.

Spectacle Lenses and Dentures (Charges) (5 May 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: Is my right hon. Friend aware that his statement will be described as naive, stupid, or courageous in the local elections this week, and that I regard it as naive and stupid? It is in direct violation of every principle of the Labour Party when we said that we would have a Health Service free of charge in time of need.

Orders of the Day — Nurses (Pay-as-You-Eat Scheme) (24 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: May I, on behalf of the National Union of Public Employees, which recruits many nurses, tell the House that the union has said that if any hospital authority overcharges nurses it will take the most militant action against that authority? Does my hon. Friend agree that, rather than join breakaway unions, the best interests of the nurses would be served by their joining the appropriate trade...

Orders of the Day — Nurses (Pay-as-You-Eat Scheme) (24 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: I am grateful for the opportunity to say a few words on behalf of the nurses who are enrolled in my union, the National Union of Public Employees. I am glad that, from what has been said, it would appear that, from now on, nurses will not have to pay more for meals than the scale laid down by the Whitley Council Agreement. It would seem that the Department has accepted its responsibilities...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of the Law (15 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: The hon. Member for Kidderminster (Sir T. Brinton) argued his case authoritatively, and was well worth listening to, especially about an added-value tax, which could well be considered. All the same, I trust he will forgive me if I do not shed any tears about Corporation Tax being increased to 45 per cent. I welcome this, but I am prepared to view with a sympathetic eye the feelings expressed...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of the Law (15 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: No, I must apologise. I will certainly do so, although the hon. Member is not keen on notifying hon. Members on this side when he makes scathing remarks about them, and he will be able to read my remarks in HANSARD. If there had to be an increase, it is right that it should be on petrol, since the user of the road, the man who takes his family for an outing in his car, or uses it for his job,...

Orders of the Day — Amendment of the Law (15 Apr 1969)

Mr Ken Lomas: There are a number of comments which I could make, but I am sure that Mr. Speaker would rule me out of order if I attempted to follow that point. I supported the policy because I believed that it was in the interests of the lower-paid workers, especially those in my own union. I believed that members of the National Union of Public Employees would benefit by a prices and incomes policy, and I...
