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

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Will not the right hon. Gentleman agree that this is a case where a local authority, which is responsible for education and the provision of playing fields and the building of a high school in my constituency, has been compelled to take certain legal steps in order to carry out the wishes of the Government, and, having taken those legal steps, the county council not only has to meet its own...

National Insurance Benefits (25 Feb 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I have listened with great interest to the speech of the right hon. Member for Thirsk and Malton (Mr. Turton). It was much more realistic than the speech from the hon. Lady the Joint Parliamentary Secretary. We are aware that the right hon. Gentleman has had some considerable experience at the Ministry of Pensions and National Insurance, and we appreciate that he has given some study to this...

National Insurance Benefits (25 Feb 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Mr. Hubbard rose—

National Insurance Benefits (25 Feb 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Is it a fact that those old-age pensioners who gain this increment by remaining longer in industry have that taken into account and do not get the supplementary pension? Is not that a shabby, mean trick which is played on these old-age pensioners? They are encouraged to remain in employment and then the money is taken from them.

Rent Bill (Allocation of Time) (4 Feb 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I find it rather difficult to follow the debate. The Leader of the House, in giving reasons for applying the Guillotine, said that the speeches in Committee had been too long and too frequent. That was the allegation. A few moments ago the hon. Member for North Angus and Mearns (Mr. ThorntonKemsley) complained of Divisions occurring far too quickly. That there should be six Divisions in...

Orders of the Day — Coal Mining (Subsidence) Bill (31 Jan 1957)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Is it not correct to say that, along with giving a new obligation, it is transferring an old obligation that has previously been discharged in part by the Exchequer? It is transferring an old obligation as well as creating a new one, and what was previously paid on account of the old obligation is being made payable now from the proceeds of the Coal Board.

National Health Service (Prescription Charges) (29 Nov 1956)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: It would appear so far that from the other side of the House we have heard a number of alleged experts on hospital management boards, pharmacy and Imperial Chemical Industries. Perhaps it might be refreshing to look for a change at the other side of the picture. One thing which struck me was how remote are the people closely associated with hospital management boards, pharmacy and I.C.I. from...

National Health Service (Prescription Charges) (29 Nov 1956)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Is the Minister not aware that the dosage of insulin for diabetic cases varies from week to week, that one cannot prescribe for a lengthy period? The same thing applies all the way through these illnesses.

Orders of the Day — Rent Bill (22 Nov 1956)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I am sure that on reflection the hon. Member for Scotstoun (Sir J. Hutchison) will regret the statement he has made in the House that those officials of local authorities responsible for the issue of certificates of disrepair have been dishonest in their administration of the procedure merely for party or political purposes and have issued such certificates on the basis of broken windows....

Orders of the Day — Rent Bill (22 Nov 1956)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: He has not taken the opportunity of withdrawing the statement. I take it that he is convinced that those officials are dishonest persons.

Orders of the Day — Rent Bill (22 Nov 1956)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Can the hon. Member quote instances?

Orders of the Day — Rent Bill (22 Nov 1956)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I deplore that any hon. Member should take advantage of his position in the House to criticise an official outside who cannot defend himself. I hope that the hon. Member will have a further opportunity of making those accusations in different circumstances. Let me finish with his speech, however; in the light of what he said, I must disregard the remainder of his speech as being completely...

Orders of the Day — Rent Bill (22 Nov 1956)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: The Secretary of State was asked when he thought Scotland would be in a comparable position in housing, and in reply he said that he had not the foggiest idea. He said that he had no intention of making a statement. In the light of that, he has no right whatever to allow the position in Scotland to be mixed up with an English Bill. He has admitted that the circumstances of the two countries...

Orders of the Day — Rent Bill (22 Nov 1956)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I was quoting what the Parliamentary Secretary said yesterday—that the time was opportune to produce this legislation because within a year's time they would almost have met the housing requirements. Surely the question is germane to the issue. I am trying to prove that the Secretary of State for Scotland and the Scottish Office, who have responsibility for legislation in Scotland—a...

Orders of the Day — Expiring Laws Continuance Bill: Schedule (20 Nov 1956)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I hope my hon. Friend is not going to start tonight another split in the party opposite.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Housing Subsidies (Representations) (13 Nov 1956)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many local authorities in Fife have protested against the proposed reduction in housing subsidies.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Housing Subsidies (Representations) (13 Nov 1956)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the local authorities in Fife, as in Scotland generally, very much resent the failure of the Scottish Office to co-operate with them when imposing conditions or making arrangements for housing subsidies; and that these subsidies have, in fact, been introduced, and are being introduced, without prior consultation with the local authorities, and that...

Mr Thomas Hubbard: asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies when the Constitutional Conference for Nigeria will meet ; who the representatives will be ; and what will be the agenda.

Industry and Employment, Scotland (26 Jul 1956)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: The fact that the Scottish whisky industry has moved down to the House of Commons has no bearing upon the important matter that we are discussing. I am fully aware that the Scottish whisky industry makes a great contribution to the economy and to the dollar position of the country. We have been treated to a great many figures this afternoon by the President of the Board of Trade. Some of us...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 1. — (Tobacco.) (5 Jun 1956)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I speak with some authority in regard to old folks as the honorary President of the Scottish Old-Age Pensioners' Association and also as a vice-president of the British Council of Old-Age Pensioners' Associations. In my opinion, old-age pensioners do not want concessions; they ought not to need concessions, They are very proud people. It is shocking that anyone should for one moment cast...
