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

Mr Thomas Hubbard: That is a rather long interruption. If the hon. Gentleman had produced any facts to support his allegations, no one would complain, but he has not done so. He did not say how many of the old people were doing this. He said he had information. How solid was it? How much was there of it? Does he know of one case? Does he know of twenty cases? Does he know what proportion of the 5 million...

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

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I shall leave the matter there, Mr. Thomas. I am quite sure that the old-age pensioners, of whom the hon. Member claims to be an officer, will know how to deal with him and what he has said about them. This is the first time in the twelve years I have been a Member of Parliament that I have heard such a charge levelled against the old-age pensioners. The old people who today are drawing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Potato Gathering (School Children's Wages) (15 May 1956)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Could the right hon. Gentleman say what he considers to be a mid-day meal? Is he aware that a mid-day meal consists sometimes of a cup of tea and some bread and butter?

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Potato Gathering (School Children's Wages) (15 May 1956)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: That is a shocking answer.

Clause 28. — (Powers of Sampling.) (8 Feb 1956)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: May we have an answer from the Lord Advocate?

Orders of the Day — Valuation and Rating (Scotland) Bill (15 Dec 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I was very interested indeed to follow the observations of the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire (Mr. Nairn). He has been wielding the knife for the last ten minutes but so far, like many unsuccessful midwives, he has produced nothing.

Orders of the Day — Valuation and Rating (Scotland) Bill (15 Dec 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I was not suggesting that midwives use knives, but that the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire was wielding a knife. If the right hon. Member for Kelvingrove (Mr. Elliot) will take his hand away from his ear he will hear a lot better.

Orders of the Day — Valuation and Rating (Scotland) Bill (15 Dec 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I did not say that the midwife was wielding a knife. I know that the right hon. Member for Kelvin-grove has practised medicine but perhaps he is not so knowledgeable as he pretends he is when he tries to be clever about words. When the right hon. Gentleman interrupted, I was going on to say that the hon. Member for Central Ayrshire repeated something said by the hon. Member for North Angus...

Orders of the Day — Valuation and Rating (Scotland) Bill (15 Dec 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I have no objection to anybody sitting in the public Gallery. I am sure that anybody who was there when the Secretary of State was introducing the Bill was very charmed and enlightened, and considered that the journey was quite worth while. I am only suggesting that when this Measure is on the Statute Book the bodies most affected will be the local authorities. They have protested against the...

Orders of the Day — Valuation and Rating (Scotland) Bill (15 Dec 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: The hon. Gentleman shakes his head, but it is quite true. If owners' rates are abolished, if the rent remains the same and the occupier receives a reduction equivalent to the amount by which the owners' rates have been transferred to the tenant, the occupier will be no worse off; but the Government have already given notice, by abolishing rent control, that rents will not be the same. They...

Orders of the Day — Valuation and Rating (Scotland) Bill (15 Dec 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I did not say that they were. I said that there were to be no subsidies for houses built in the future, either for slum clearance or in the Development Areas.

National Assistance (7 Dec 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I am particularly glad to catch your eye, Mr. Deputy-Speaker, at this moment so that the honour falls on me to compliment the hon. Member for Wandsworth, Central (Mr. Hughes-Young), who has just made his maiden speech. I feel particularly fortunate in being able to do so because, although my constituency is a long way from Wandsworth, I notice that the hon. Member began his very distinguished...

National Assistance (7 Dec 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: If there is anything which makes me feel sick it is the repeated attempt by hon. Members opposite to justify something which is wrong simply because we thought it was right at some time in the past. Let me say here what I have said elsewhere. The man who has not changed his mind has never changed his shirt. I do not try to justify the actions of the Government in power at that time. I look at...

National Assistance (7 Dec 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I agree, it is for medical patients. Obviously, it would be much better to ensure that these old people are adequately fed and cared for than that they should occupy hospital beds. There is another very tragic aspect of this matter. I refer to the number of old people who today are accommodated in mental hospitals simply because there is no other place for them. I would rather use as a...

National Assistance (7 Dec 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: These old people had to go without any increase last Christmas because there was to be an Election this year. The Government had admitted the need, but nothing was done until April of this year. The Election had come along, but just prior to it an increase in old-age pensions was announced. If that is how the Government are going to compute human values, the Parliamentary Secretary, for all...

National Assistance (7 Dec 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: is the hon. Member not aware that the increase in the old-age pension was not made until April this year, but that legislation was going through the House last Christmas time, although the Minister had admitted the need for pension increases a year earlier than that?

National Assistance (7 Dec 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Yes, and—

National Assistance (7 Dec 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: What my hon. Friend for Ince said was that in this country there are a number of pensions granted—he instanced one or two of them—for large sums without any regard being paid to the means of the individuals concerned. The hon. Gentleman ought to be fair and factual in his comments about the speech of my hon. Friend.

Oral Answers to Questions — Pensions and National Insurance: Benefits (21 Nov 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Would not the Minister agree that he is in no way tied to the terms of the original Act; that there was a review of the National Insurance Act in December; and that it was within his power to put into that new Act anything that he thought fit and proper in the interests of the recipients?

Oral Answers to Questions — Pensions and National Insurance: Information (21 Nov 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Is not the right hon. Gentleman aware that the number of old-age pensioners undergoing treatment in our hospitals and mental institutions is far higher than ever before, because of their suffering through inadequate pensions? Will the Minister inquire of his right hon. Friends the Minister of Health and the Secretary of State for Scotland, when he will find that hospitals are having great...
