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

Mr Thomas Hubbard: No.

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

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I was talking about what it costs people to live. The index does not include only the things which pensioners deem to be necessary, such as food, shelter and heating. I was about to say that if we were realistic we should face the fact that—to take only the increase in the price of coal, apart from anything else—the pensioners are sitting in their houses in the cold throughout the winter....

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Industry and Employment) (15 Jul 1954)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I am quite sure that the rather general picture the Secretary of State for Scotland has just painted will be a matter of satisfaction to the Committee and to Scotland as a whole. What must be emphasised is that this pleasant picture of the state of industry and low unemployment figures cannot have come about by accident. Our thanks are now due to those whose planning in the past has resulted...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Industry and Employment) (15 Jul 1954)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Yes. I wonder if any one of them has ever thought what he would do if he had 15 tons of coal lying outside his house on a nice smooth pavement, and had to remove it to his coal cellar. An unpleasant thought, no doubt. Perhaps his criticisms of the miners would not be so loud by the time he had got to the end of the job of removing 15 tons of coal. That is what the miners are doing in...

Orders of the Day — Scotland (Industry and Employment) (15 Jul 1954)

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Hospital Boards (Appointments) (4 May 1954)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Is the right hon. Gentle man aware that there are other members of the East Fife Hospitals Board of Management who have also served since 1948? Is he further aware that ex-Provost Slater, and Bailie Mrs. Anderson have had a long-standing dispute with; the Regional Hospitals Board about hospital development in Fife, and can he say if their departure from the board has anything to do with the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Hospital Boards (Appointments) (4 May 1954)

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Doctors Lists (Partnerships) (9 Feb 1954)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that, where medical practitioners work in partnership, patients may enter the name of one of the partners as their doctor for National Health Service purposes; that this partner may thus accumulate more names on his register than is provided for in the regulations, although the patients are aware that they may be attended to by another...

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Doctors Lists (Partnerships) (9 Feb 1954)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Is the right hon. and gallant Gentleman aware that one of the evil effects of this arrangement is that doctors who may wish to take assistants into partnership hold back, because, under the existing arrangements, they would have to canvass their patients in order to have them transferred to the name of the new partner? Many men who might well have become partners are consequently still assistants.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Doctors Lists (Partnerships) (9 Feb 1954)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: That is not the point of the Question. Where a doctor has an assistant the number of patients is divided equally between the doctor and his assistant, but when he promotes the assistant to be a partner there is a new arrangement and, unlessthe patients nominate the partner, the doctor does not find the patients equally allocated between himself and the assistant. For that reason we require an...

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Forth Ferry Service (3 Feb 1954)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: Would the Minister consider getting into touch with those responsible for the road haulage and the road passenger services with a view to restoring the Granton to Burntisland ferry service? The ferry boat and piers are still there and they would relieve the pressure at the Queensferry passage.

Orders of the Day — Electricity Reorganisation (Scotland) Bill (3 Feb 1954)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I listened with great interest to the opening speech by the Secretary of State for Scotland, and I have since listened to four other speeches from the Government benches on this Bill, but in not one speech have I heard any reason why the Bill was introduced to the House, except, perhaps, that it was a form of devolution and Scottish Home Rule. I do not envy the Joint Under-Secretary of State...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (4 Nov 1953)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I trust that the hon. Member for Hampstead (Mr. H. Brooke) will excuse me if I do not follow him in the debate by focusing my remarks on the paragraph in the Gracious Speech dealing with housing. It is not because I want to minimise in any way the importance of this matter or of its possible impact upon those who will be asked to meet the higher rents. There are, however, some 25 or 26...

Mr Thomas Hubbard: asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will now make a statement on the steps being taken to provide a better hospital service in Fife.

Oral Answers to Questions — Scotland: Hospital Services, Fife (Expansion) (25 Nov 1952)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: While thanking the hon. and gallant Gentleman for his expeditious action in this matter, which will be greatly appreciated by the large number of patients awaiting hospital beds, may I have his assurance that the amenities in these hospitals will be of a sufficiently high standard to attract medical and nursing staffs? Further, may I have his assurance that the proposed hospital units at...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (5 Nov 1952)

Mr Thomas Hubbard: I listened with great interest to the statement made by the noble Lady the Member for Aberdeen, South (Lady Tweedsmuir) about professional people. Among the professional people she mentioned in the early part of her speech were professional politicians, and she said that many of them did not seek promotion because that brought unhappiness. I see no evidence whatever on the other side of the...
