Second Schedule. — (Amendments of Benefit Provisions of Industrial Injuries Act.) (29 May 1952)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I am quite sure that the Parliamentary Secretary realises that the people to whom I am referring are the very large number who have no option but to retire for health reasons, particularly those engaged in heavy industry, and who have no other occupation. It is all very well to say that they could do other work, but that would depend on their being qualified to do it and if such work were...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Kirkcaldy Hospital (Admissions) (29 Apr 1952)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: In the light of those shocking figures—1,500 patients awaiting hospital beds in a hospital that has a total of 74 beds—will the hon. and gallant Gentleman do something—cause an inquiry to be held, or do something—to improve the provision of beds in this particular area?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Kirkcaldy Hospital (Admissions) (29 Apr 1952)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: On that particular occasion I was told that it was impossible to give a date for the new building. It is not much good at all simply to say that at some date in the future some steps will be taken. I again ask the hon. and gallant Gentleman to start an inquiry into this matter so that something be done now, and to give a date when we can expect the provision of beds in this area, which is a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Kirkcaldy Hospital (Admissions) (29 Apr 1952)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Here again, might I ask that something should be done to deal with this matter which is causing much concern to everyone, including the hospital Board?

Will he institute inquiries to see whether more provision...

Orders of the Day — National Assistance (Increased Scales) (29 Apr 1952)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Is the hon. Member not aware that that is part of the work of the old age pensioners' association? It has invited officers of the Board to visit the branches of the association to explain these matters. I speak with some knowledge as an honorary president of the association.

Orders of the Day — National Assistance (Increased Scales) (29 Apr 1952)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I appreciate the pressing urgency of this problem in relation to the passing of the Regulations. Regulations today mean much less than they used to mean. In fact, the rapidly changing cost of living has meant that for a considerable time these people living on the lowest possible scales have always been lagging behind. The last Regulations which were issued came before the House in June, but...

Orders of the Day — National Assistance (Increased Scales) (29 Apr 1952)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: They have no margin whatever, and pennies mean something to these people. I wish I could be optimistic enough to believe that in the months ahead of us the figures given in the draft Regulations will in fact meet that. Can we have an assurance that if there is an all round increase in wages, corresponding with the tremendous figure given to the farmers, we shall have new Regulations before...

Orders of the Day — National Assistance (Increased Scales) (29 Apr 1952)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Yes, I have that in mind and also that a few short weeks ago, replying from the Despatch Box, the Minister of National Insurance said that it would require 34s. 4d. to give the old age pensioner the equivalent purchasing power he was enjoying from 26s. in 1946. It was even lagging behind the figure stated then, and that was before the Budget. While hon. Members opposite accuse my right hon....

Orders of the Day — National Assistance (Increased Scales) (29 Apr 1952)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I never said anything of the sort. I hope the hon. Gentleman will do me the courtesy of trying to listen. Perhaps I think like a Scotsman and speak like a Scotsman, and that makes it difficult for him. We as a party have never believed in a means test. I think it is bad, and, therefore, while we do not like the determination of need, it is something we have to accept. We have never told the...
