RENT BILL [Lords]: Agreements Authorised by Court Not to Give Rise to Protected Tenancies (30 Jul 1974)

Mr William Worsley: I support my right hon. Friend the Member for Crosby (Mr. Page). I declare an interest as an owner of some rented property. The case I want to adduce in his support is the situation in my constituency to which a lot of people come who, for one reason or another, need to come to London to do a job for a short time—say, two or three years—and then move away. As a result of the Bill, such...

Greater London Council (Money) Bill (20 May 1974)

Mr William Worsley: Sir Marcus Worsley (Chelsea) rose in his place and claimed to move, That the Question be now put.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Maintenance Awards (Non-Payment) (22 Jan 1974)

Mr William Worsley: Does not my hon. Friend agree that it is tragic that this report has been so long delayed, in view of its extreme importance? Will he give the House an assurance, first, that publication will be expedited and, secondly, that action upon the report will be expedited?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Earnings Rule (22 Jan 1974)

Mr William Worsley: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services what encouragement his Department is giving to the concept of staged retirement ; and whether he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Earnings Rule (22 Jan 1974)

Mr William Worsley: I agree that progress in this direction could not be fast. Does my hon. Friend accept that there should be some acceptance by the Government that such a concept should be part of the Government's pension policy?

Agriculture Act 1967 (Amendment) Regulations (24 Jul 1973)

Mr William Worsley: I start by declaring an interest as an owner of agricultural and forestry land. I think that the instruments will help the amalgamation scheme forward, and that is desirable. But the Government are pursuing two diametrically opposed policies. The instruments are designed to make amalgamations easier. However, my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer is pursuing a taxation policy...

New Clause D: Review of Provision for Chronically Sick and Disabled Persons (16 Jul 1973)

Mr William Worsley: I support the amendment. Despite the qualifications that we have heard from the hon. Member for Rhondda, West (Mr. Alec Jones), in my view it is a major step forward. It is not true to suggest that this Government have been remiss in what they have done for the disabled. More has been done in the early years of this Parliament than in any other that I recollect. However, I share the hon....

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Parking Offences (Diplomatic Immunity) (12 Jul 1973)

Mr William Worsley: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many persons have been charged with infringement of the parking regulations during the last convenient period and subsequently have been shown to have enjoyed diplomatic immunity.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Parking Offences (Diplomatic Immunity) (12 Jul 1973)

Mr William Worsley: Does not my hon. and learned Friend agree that it is a com- plete nonsense that diplomatic immunity, intended to allow diplomats to pursue their affairs without intervention by the Government, should be extended in any way to parking regulations of this sort?

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Housing (Disabled Persons) (11 Jul 1973)

Mr William Worsley: asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what steps he is taking to encourage local authorities to provide specialist housing for disabled people.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Housing (Disabled Persons) (11 Jul 1973)

Mr William Worsley: Will my hon. Friend go a little further than that and give active encouragement? Does he not agree that quite small differences in the design of flats in particular, especially in having rather larger lifts and avoiding steps, can make all the difference in the world to whether a flat is usable by a disabled person or by someone who becomes disabled when living there? Will my hon. Friend take...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Hotel Staff (London) (10 Jul 1973)

Mr William Worsley: asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether, before allowing work permits for hotel staff in London, he will ensure that the employers of such staff provide accommodation for them in order to avoid further overstraining the limited supply of furnished accommodation in London.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Hotel Staff (London) (10 Jul 1973)

Mr William Worsley: Will my hon. Friend agree on reflection that this does not go far enough? Is he aware that men with work permits who are taken on by hotels often bring with them a great number of dependants who want to live in furnished accommodation, which is extremely short in central London? In my borough there are five such families in temporary accommodation which is provided for the homeless. Does not...

Clause 2: Speech Therapy Services (Quirk Report) (6 Jul 1973)

Mr William Worsley: I shall be brief. I am very glad to join in the debate. The hon. Member for Willesden, West (Mr. Pavitt) complained about the form of the debate and what he called a weak motion by the Government. He is wrong about that. It is right that the Government should come to the House before they take final decisions to let us have "take note" debates on an issue such as this, where there are many...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance and Supplementary Benefit Bill: Amendment of National Insurance Act 1965 (22 Jun 1973)

Mr William Worsley: Hon. Members opposite have frequently used the word "swindle". The pension scheme introduced by the Conservative Government in 1958 was, I believe, based on a false premise—that one could have a viable national insurance scheme with a procedure for opting out for some members of the scheme into occupational schemes. The Labour Government, when they eventually produced their pension scheme...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance and Supplementary Benefit Bill: Amendment of National Insurance Act 1965 (22 Jun 1973)

Mr William Worsley: Of course I understand that the Labour Government wished to abolish the scheme, but originally they did not wish to "dynamise the bricks"—I am glad that the hon. Gentleman did not use that jargon. I understood that the initial proposition was that it should not be dynamised. If I am told that I am wrong, I accept the correction. It was my understanding that the Labour Government changed...

NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE REORGANISATION BILL [Lords]: Regional and Area Health Authori Ties, Family Practitioner Com Mittees and Special Health Authorities (12 Jun 1973)

Mr William Worsley: I hope my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State will resist the amendment. I could not help wondering whether the hon. Member for Southwark (Mr. Lamborn) would apply the same argument to education. I should be surprised if he wanted to dismantle the Inner London Education Authority on the same principle. The problems of many of the social services in the London area, particularly in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Housing Development Dispute (Kensington-Chelsea) (16 May 1973)

Mr William Worsley: Does my hon. Friend agree that matters such as this—and this one happens to be in my constituency—are delicate issues, involving questions of breach of contract, and that it is unhelpful for Members from other constituencies to interfere and to ask questions? Is he aware that work is likely to restart on this important project in my constituency very shortly?

Orders of the Day — Social Security Bill: Reserve Scheme Contributions (9 May 1973)

Mr William Worsley: My remarks will be short because I do not claim great expertise in this subject. Obviously, like everyone interested in the social services I have been listening intently to the arguments in the discussion. One thing which strikes me clearly is that it involves a value judgment between those who take one view and those who take the other. No one knows what will happen, and the real question...

Orders of the Day — Social Security Bill: Invalid Care Allowance (8 May 1973)

Mr William Worsley: I wish to support what the hon. Lady the Member for Wood Green (Mrs. Joyce Butler) said. The case she has outlined constitutes one of the major gaps in our social provision. In subsequent debates on Report we shall no doubt cover others. The hon. Lady did right to bring this case forward and to speak of the work done by the organisation she mentioned. Like the other gaps in our social...
