Orders of the Day — Scotland (Health Services) (24 Jul 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: We have listened with great interest to the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Kelvingrove (Mr. Walter Elliot). He is always very interesting on health matters—just as he was a very interesting companion in Nigeria—and we are all delighted to hear from him. Nevertheless, this is not a debate between doctor and doctor. Indeed, if there is any failing in this type of debate it is that...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Health Services) (24 Jul 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Does the hon. Gentleman not agree that when a doctor diagnoses coronary thrombosis he ought to notify it? After all, he cannot notify measles unless he knows someone has got it.

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Health Services) (24 Jul 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: No.

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Health Services) (24 Jul 1957)

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Health Services) (24 Jul 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Will the evidence of the effects of smoking on lung cancer stop my hon. Friend herself from smoking?

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Health Services) (24 Jul 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Would the hon. Gentleman say something about the care of old people during those lonely, long night vigils that they have alone? Does the hon. Gentleman intend to do anything about that at all? The home help service is all right in the day-time, but many of these old people need some help at night.

Orders of the Day — Industry in Scotland (18 Jul 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Is the Minister not taking into account the drift south, which obviously had a tremendous effect on the Scottish figures?

Orders of the Day — Industry in Scotland (18 Jul 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: The hon. Gentleman must be aware that since nationalisation the working of the coal mines has been almost completely reorganised, and now the best of our young men have to do the job in the mines which ought to have been done years ago when they were privately owned. He must surely take cognisance of that fact. Not only labour but millions of pounds of money have had to be expended upon the...

Orders of the Day — Industry in Scotland (18 Jul 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: The hon. Member should go back to the mines to help.

Orders of the Day — Industry in Scotland (18 Jul 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: What about wages?

Orders of the Day — Industry in Scotland (18 Jul 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Is the hon. Member prepared to take into account a fact which is very germane in regard to Scotland, namely, that prior to the war the jute industry was the poorest paid industry in this country and that those who were engaged in it were mainly women who were forced to work in it because of conditions at the time? Since then the jute industry has become a very well-paid industry, which looks...

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Who made these speeches?

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill: Clause 5. — (Termination of Local Authorities' Obligation to Make Certain Contributions, and Power to Carry Other Sums to Credit of Housing Revenue Accounts.) (3 Jun 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I wish that the hon. Gentleman the Joint Under-Secretary or his colleagues, speaking in terms of this Bill and this Clause, would sometimes take into consideration the people who still require to be housed by the local authorities. They always seem to miss out the human element. Under the existing arrangements, local authorities have contracted to pay a ratio towards the subsidy of a new...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill: Clause 5. — (Termination of Local Authorities' Obligation to Make Certain Contributions, and Power to Carry Other Sums to Credit of Housing Revenue Accounts.) (3 Jun 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Of course it will. If a local authority can afford to house its people after this Bill becomes an Act, it will do so on much smaller subsidies than hitherto it could get from the Government.

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill: Clause 5. — (Termination of Local Authorities' Obligation to Make Certain Contributions, and Power to Carry Other Sums to Credit of Housing Revenue Accounts.) (3 Jun 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I am trying to get the hon. Gentleman to look at this matter not from the point of view of what the local authority can pay, but how the Bill will restrict the people still waiting to be housed. If a local authority has no obligation to pay, it will be almost impossible for it, without that contractual amount from the rates, to house its people. Indeed, the Secretary of State for Scotland has...

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill: Clause 16. — (Provision for Failure to Carry Out Duties Under Overspill Agreements or Town Development Schemes.) (3 Jun 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: We have reached an extraordinary stage in this Bill. Nothing compels the local authorities to accept an overspill agreement, which is entered into voluntarily between exporting authorities and receiving authorities. So far, our local authorities have had no experience whatever of these matters. The success of the Bill will depend upon whether the importing authorities will give it a trial....

Orders of the Day — Housing and Town Development (Scotland) Bill: Clause 16. — (Provision for Failure to Carry Out Duties Under Overspill Agreements or Town Development Schemes.) (3 Jun 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I have previously said that the hon. Member for Kidderminster (Mr. Nabarro) reminded me of Jimmy Edwards, but even he is not as rude as all that. Local authorities, both receiving and exporting, have been asked to undertake large financial responsibilities. Exporting authorities are expected to pay £14 per house for ten years, and yet they do not know what may arise under this Clause....

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Tay Bridge (Roads) (19 Mar 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether, in the planning of roads in Fife leading to and from the Forth road bridge, consideration will be given to the road requirements necessary when a road bridge is built over the River Tay.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Tay Bridge (Roads) (19 Mar 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Would the right hon. Gentleman not agree that there will be quite a big increase in the traffic on these roads, and on the existing roads between North Queensferry and Dundee, that this is in the middle of a coal developing area where extensive coal development is going on, and that it would be imprudent to spend any money unless one takes into consideration the increased volume of traffic?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Buckhaven High School (Land Acquisition Charges) (19 Mar 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, in view of the fact that in normal processes of law all ex- penses, including those of the successful party, are borne by the unsuccessful party, why his Department has invited the education authority for the county of Fife to pay his expenses in connection with the compulsory acquisition of land at Buckhaven High School.
