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

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Is the Minister not aware that in 1948 old people were specifically asked to continue in industry owing to the shortage of manpower and that, as a consequence, they were to receive added increments? Many old people continued in industry for three or four years beyond the retirement age, and now when, because of the difference in the cost of living today, they make application for National...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Coronary Thrombosis (8 Nov 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: In view of the alarming figures of this killer disease, will the Secretary of State now take steps to get a voluntary notification agreement among local authorities in Scotland? Nobody knows the incidence of coronary thrombosis in Scotland, and as two schemes are already in operation in Fifeshire and Kilmarnock. will the right hon. Gentleman make an approach to local authorities for a scheme...

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Is the Secretary of State aware that the incidence of chest diseases in Scotland, and in Fife in particular, is now higher than in any other coalfield in the country, that the matter is really urgent, apart from the health of the men, as far as coal production is concerned, but that nothing very much is apparently being done to combat this dread disease?

Economic and Financial Policy (31 Oct 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: The Housewives League?

National Coal Board (Report and Accounts) (20 Jul 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I am quite sure that the hon. and gallant Gentleman the Member for South Fylde (Colonel Lancaster) will forgive me if I do not follow him too far into his arguments, because I find that he was arguing the question right, left and centre and was then suggesting that what we ought to do is to have some fresh thoughts on it. I should have thought that there had been ample time to give...

National Coal Board (Report and Accounts) (20 Jul 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Our speeches might have been improved, Sir, had the hon. and gallant Gentleman given us the advantage of his conversation with Sir Charles Reid. In addition to the Reports to which I have referred, we have also read the statement made by the chairman of the National Coal Board as recently as a month ago at the miners' conference in Rothesay. That gentleman cannot be accused of being either...

National Coal Board (Report and Accounts) (20 Jul 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: The hon. Member reminds me of Jimmy Edwards blowing the trombone. There is just about the same appearance and the same noise. He should bring his trombone with him on the next occasion, and then we might enjoy his interventions more. If the price of coal had been increased at that time, the electors would have known whether the Tory Government had brought the prosperity which they claimed to...

National Coal Board (Report and Accounts) (20 Jul 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I should be grateful if the Minister, whose authority I respect rather more than that of the hon. Member for Kidderminster (Mr. Nabarro), would say so. If it is not the responsibility of the Minister, it must be that of the Coal Board, and it should appear in the balance sheet. Why is it not made clear what price is paid for coal by every industry? Obviously, that is the responsibility of...

National Coal Board (Report and Accounts) (20 Jul 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Not at all. All I wish to see is the users of industrial coal paying an economic price for it. They should not be subsidised, they should pay the same price as anyone else. At Rothesay, an accredited official of the National Union of Mineworkers stated publicly that the steel industry in the area had made a profit of over £60 million last year. He further stated that if the industry had...

National Coal Board (Report and Accounts) (20 Jul 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Does that make it right? Are all the things about which hon. Members complain right because they were done by a previous Government? In point of fact, when the Labour Government was dealing with this question, the volume of imported coal was very low and coal was imported as a temporary expedient. Now, the importation of coal appears to be something which has become permanent. It is very...

National Coal Board (Report and Accounts) (20 Jul 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I am glad that the "trombone player" has given us some further information. I understand that the further importation of American coal, which has to be shipped to the Continent and reshipped to this country, will result in a loss of £3 a ton. Is the Coal Board to be held responsible for that? Is that to be another reason why the Lord Privy Seal can say that the nationalised coal industry...

National Coal Board (Report and Accounts) (20 Jul 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Yes, and above all that, there are the interest charges to the former coal owners, which, last year, amounted to £17½ million. And what have we got for it? A lot of coal mines which are now redundant. These things must be faced. We have to consider a great many interests and, as an ex-miner and one who can never dissociate himself from the industry, I wish to enter a claim on behalf of the...

Health Services, Scotland (19 Jul 1955)
