Health Services, Scotland (19 Jul 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: And clinics.

Health Services, Scotland (19 Jul 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: This debate has ranged over a very wide area. I have been interested in many of the speeches which have been made and would dearly like to follow my hon. Friend the Member for Lanarkshire, North (Miss Herbison), who spoke about the care of the aged, which is a subject very close to my heart. I am afraid, however, that upon this occasion I must leave that subject and take up the subject of...

Health Services, Scotland (19 Jul 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I must apologise to the House. If I said that, I said it wrongly. It is a voluntary scheme, both in Kilmarnock and in Fife. The value of the voluntary scheme will not be fully felt until we have wider information. The Fife scheme might be made to include the large burghs of Kirkcaldy and Dunfermline. We miss out that large group of people, but we should include them in order that the scheme...

Health Services, Scotland (19 Jul 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I hope that is true. I can only speak of the experiments which I know are being carried on. I am glad to know that Kilmarnock's was the original scheme. It has been an original place for many things.

Health Services, Scotland (19 Jul 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: To get the full value of this type of research, could the Secretary of State ask Scottish local authorities to agree to voluntary notification of coronary thrombosis for a period, say, of two years? I am aware that the Secretary of State has no power of compulsion, but I am satisfied that if local authorities knew that they had the blessing of the Secretary of State they would co-operate and...

Health Services, Scotland (19 Jul 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Has the promise to build the new general hospital in the County of Fife now been abandoned? That was agreed to two years ago, and I have not heard any mention of it since then. I am wondering whether it has been withdrawn.

Health Services, Scotland (19 Jul 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Two years ago the hon. Gentleman's Department approved the building of a new general hospital of 250 beds in the County of Fife, in view of the tremendous need for them in the area, especially as there are 17 patients waiting for every bed when it becomes empty. There has been no improvement, but many more people have been going into Fife, and many more are likely to go there. Will the...

Health Services, Scotland (19 Jul 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Can the hon. Gentleman say why the building of the new general hospital has been put back? Why has it been removed from the list? Can he give any explanation for it? It is not sufficient to talk about priorities when the decision has been already taken and the plans have been prepared.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Civil Defence (21 Jun 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: On a point of order. Are we to understand from the interruptions by hon. Gentlemen opposite that some resentment is being expressed about the length of Scottish Questions?

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (16 Jun 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: One might well be excused for thinking that this debate was not concerned with the Gracious Speech or with the greatest difficulty we have ever faced in this country, but only whether we should have co-partnership or profit-sharing schemes, or something of that description. I believe that in these difficult times we ought to devote some part of the debate to the question of profit making...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Local Government Structure and Functions (14 Jun 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: How can the right hon. Gentleman tell what results he is likely to get before he has the inquiry—whether there is a need for it or not?

Orders of the Day — Schedule (19 Apr 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: The hon. and gallant Member for Ilford, South (Squadron Leader Cooper) complained that hon. Members on this side of the Committee could not make up their minds whether this was a General Election Budget or not. I cannot claim to know the intentions of the Chancellor and the Government about the Budget any more than I can claim to know what was in their minds when they decided to have a...

Orders of the Day — Schedule (19 Apr 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Of course it is the same thing.

Orders of the Day — Schedule (19 Apr 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: When a man talks about coal production he should know that what must be taken into account is the number of men who are actually working at the coal face. It must be obvious that, as time goes on, the coal face is further and further away and that there must be new developments in coalmining. There are new developments. The production of coal is important for our export-import trade and a...

Clause 39. — (Transitional Provisions and Savings.) (29 Mar 1955)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I am sure that the House is grateful to my hon. Friend for going so carefully into this. I have not yet heard the Government say anything about atomic stations, the hydrogen bomb, poaching or a General Election. Is there something still to be mentioned for protection here?

Old-Age Pensions (16 Nov 1954)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: No doubt, the hon. and gallant Member for Portsmouth, West (Brigadier Clarke), who was speaking in terms of the second front, may have second thoughts on this matter before the time comes for the House to divide, because he said that he was in favour of an immediate increase for the old-age pensioners, whether he meant that declaration or not. We shall no doubt see a difference between his...

Old-Age Pensions (16 Nov 1954)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: The House will understand from what the hon. and gallant Gentleman said that he believed the old-age pensioners should have an increase now, and the record of the Division will no doubt show whether he stands by that belief. A Motion of censure is a rather serious thing in this House. It is always dealt with as a serious matter, and it is right and proper that it should be so. A Motion of...

Old-Age Pensions (16 Nov 1954)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I am coming to that as my next point. I remember being a Member of this House when the matter was discussed. The Government was the Coalition Government, and the Tory Party issued a White Paper in which they proposed legislation giving 20s. for a single person and 35s. for a couple. We have a saying in Scotland which may fall on deaf ears in this House, but I will repeat it. It is: … facts...

Orders of the Day — Pensions and Benefits (Increase) (21 Jul 1954)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I am quite sure that if the House is convinced of anything it is convinced that the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance has fallen far short of doing justice to the old-age pensioners. Indeed, the right hon. Gentleman has convinced the House that he does not understand the problems of the aged people. I think the right hon. Gentleman has closed his mind completely to those sources...

Orders of the Day — Pensions and Benefits (Increase) (21 Jul 1954)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I am sure that my right hon. Friend is able to deal with that question without any inducement from the hon. Member. It is wrong at a time like this, when there is increased longevity, that old people should be asked to continue in work and that when they respond they should be penalised in the way I have outlined. I do not think that any one could justify treatment of that kind. There are...
