Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Disabled Persons (Quota Scheme) (12 Jun 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: Does not the best form of help for disabled people lie in retraining? Is my right hon. Friend satisfied that the Government are doing enough in retraining the disabled and others as well?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Home Nursing Service (8 May 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services if he is satisfied that the home nursing service will be maintained at present standards in the period between local government losing its health powers and the new health authorities taking over.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Home Nursing Service (8 May 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: Can my right hon. Friend tell us what will be the length of this interregnum period? Does he agree that any change causes unsettle-ment in the minds of people employed in such organisations? Can he do something to remove any unease in the minds of people employed in this service?

Orders of the Day — Prices (7 May 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: I welcome the opportunity to follow the hon. Member for Cornwall, North (Mr. Pardoe), because I feel that his speech was rather like the curate's egg—very good in parts. I think that he was entitled at the beginning to have his cock-a-doodle-doo about the Opinion Research Centre poll. But perhaps he had better not count his chickens too soon. The hon. Gentleman was right to say that the...

Orders of the Day — Prices (7 May 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: I do not want to prolong the point. I am not over-stressing it. I said that it was an important factor. I can think of two men living in the constituency of the hon. Member for Ince who told me what they were giving their wives for housekeeping and who when I suggested that, out of the wage I knew they were earning, they could give a bit more, said, "It's as much as she can spend." It is a...

Orders of the Day — Prices (7 May 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: I will certainly have words with the hon. Member in the Lobby. Someone asked me to name the people protesting about the tax credit scheme as it affects family allowances. I suggest that they have a word with the right hon. Member for Blackburn (Mrs. Castle), who presented a petition. She will have the names and addresses. The right hon. Member for Bristol, South-East (Mr. Benn) spoke about...

Orders of the Day — Prices (7 May 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: —who have seen me individually and privately? None of them knew that the others had seen me but each asked me how they could form a breakaway trade union so that they could be registered under the Act and avoid wasteful strikes in which they did not believe.

Orders of the Day — Prices (7 May 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: I hardly think that you would agree, Mr. Speaker, to my going through every section in the Act now. Perhaps I am wrong in saying it is seven-eighths. Perhaps it is eight-ninths or six-tenths. What I am trying to say is that these 12 people have seen me confidentially in my constituency. It would be wrong to disclose their names. I have always advised them to attend their union branch meetings...

Orders of the Day — Prices (7 May 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: I do not believe that the hon. Gentleman is an economist either, but at least I admit it. It does not need an economist to know that if the pound falls in value our import prices rise. Raw materials go up, the prices of our manufactured goods rise and we are on the inflationary spiral. If our manufacturing prices could begin to stabilise or to fall the pound would begin to rise in value,...

Business of the House (3 May 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: May I once again press my right hon. Friend to find time to debate the subject of metrication? Has he seen the letter I sent to him yesterday showing that in the present situation there is a possibility of danger to life and limb, if somebody misunderstands the difference between simple metrication and the new SI units. If there is a danger of sloppy joints in motorway bridges, may there not...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Wage Settlements (1 May 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many wage settlements known to the Department have been made within the £1 plus 4 per cent. prescribed for stage 2 of the counter-inflation policy; and how many people are covered by them.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Wage Settlements (1 May 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: Surely this matter is too important to leave the figures to the views of the Pay Board. Cannot we have the full figures published and made widely known? In view of the obvious acceptance of stage 2 by a large number of workers, does my right hon. Friend care to comment on today's strike?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Counter-Inflationary Policy (1 May 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: asked the Prime Minister if he will invite the Association of British Chambers of Commerce to join future discussions with the CBI and TUC on counter-inflationary policy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Counter-Inflationary Policy (1 May 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: I thank the Prime Minister for that reply. Is he aware that, just as there are workers who are not affiliated to the TUC, so there are many firms which are not members of the CBI? Are not chambers of commerce more representative of the 1¼ million small firms which are of tremendous importance to the economy?

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Television Licence Fee (Pensioners) (30 Apr 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications how many retirement pensioners in Bolton are now entitled to old persons' homes television licences; and how many have availed themselves of them.

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Television Licence Fee (Pensioners) (30 Apr 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: I am sure that my right hon. Friend will agree that there are people who could take up this con cession and do not. Does not that really prove that not all old-age pensioners want television and that many who cannot afford the full licence fee do not get the concession while many who do get it can afford the full fee? Would not my right hon. Friend be well advised to have a word with his...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Taxation Yield (19 Apr 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer by what proportion direct taxation would have to be increased to produce the same yield as value added tax; and what would be the rates of corporation and personal income tax which would result.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Taxation Yield (19 Apr 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: Is not the real answer to this that if the policies advocated by the Opposition were to be implemented the threshold of direct taxation would have to come down, affecting the lower paid and undoing the work done by the Government in that respect?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Economic Situation (Prime Minister's Speech) (17 Apr 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: asked the Prime Minister if he will place in the Library a copy of his speech to Sidcup Young Conservatives on 30th March on the subject of the economy.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Economic Situation (Prime Minister's Speech) (17 Apr 1973)

Mr Robert Redmond: If my right hon. Friend should notice some familiar faces missing from the Opposition benches on next Tuesday week, will he say whether those hon. Gentlemen will draw their parliamentary pay, or strike pay, or whether their families will draw social security benefits?
