Orders of the Day — Economic Situation (10 Nov 1952)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I understood from the opening remarks of the hon. Member that he was of the impression that no amount of legislation or administration would alter this inevitable tendency in private industry to become monopolistic; that there was nothing we can do about it—

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that, by designating the proposed new Development Area in North-East Lancashire on such a narrow basis, he will be injuring the future development of excluded boroughs, such as Darwen; and if he will widen the basis in order that such boroughs may attract industries now artificially diverted to the Development Area.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: North-East Lancashire Development Area (13 Nov 1952)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: If the weaving area, which the hon. Lady the Member for Blackburn, East (Mrs. Castle) rightly said is a national unit, is to be cut into two in this way, does it not inevitably follow that, at least to some extent, the excluded area will be prejudiced in favour of the included area?

Orders of the Day — Housing (Building Costs) (13 Nov 1952)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I have in my hand one of the gloomiest documents that ever came out of a Government Department. It is the third Girdwood Report on the cost of house building. It covers the period from 1949 to 1951, and I need only read three sentences out of it to give the House some idea of the seriousness of the position, at least as late as 1951. On page iv of the Introduction, the Committee report: There...

Orders of the Day — Town and Country Planning Bill (1 Dec 1952)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: He has done something else as well; he has paid the development charge, which he did not know about when he purchased the land.

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Sir Malcolm Trustram Eve held public meetings all over England at the time, explaining these matters, and particularly tried to induce people to sell land at the existing use value. I have been to several of these public meetings. It is no use the hon. Gentleman saying that Sir Malcolm Trustram Eve shrouded himself in some holy mystery.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Monopolies Commission (Appointments) (2 Dec 1952)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Would it not nevertheless speed up the work of this Commission considerably, since the Commission itself and not the secretariat is at present the bottleneck?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Development Areas (16 Dec 1952)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Can my hon. and learned Friend confirm that these boundaries are not fixed for all time, and that, if circumstances in the area permit, it would be possible to alter the boun- daries, either by widening or narrowing them, according to changing conditions?

Class Vi. Vote 4: Export Credits (26 Jan 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: There is just one question I should like to ask my hon. Friend. I suppose that his Department is subrogated to the rights of exporters in these contracts and is precisely like any other insurer. For that reason he has all the legal rights of any ordinary insurer as to taking action for breach of contract, and I hope he will pursue these to the utmost. In all these matters the feeling is...

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53; Army Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53: Anglo-Argentine Trade Agreement (27 Jan 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Since I was not in the previous Parliament, it is perhaps easier for me to deal with this Agreement than it is for some others. My criticism of it is that it is so similar to the two previous Agreements, particularly in the lax method of its drafting. It does not seem to me that it lies in the mouth of the Opposition to criticise it. Insofar as it is different it certainly moves a little way...

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53; Army Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53: Anglo-Argentine Trade Agreement (27 Jan 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: It is £92 million. It is all added up for the hon. Gentleman on page 19.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Cotton Industry (Productivity Team Report) (5 Feb 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Would my right hon. Friend not agree that the leeway which undoubtedly exists in the case of some of these firms is due to the fact that, owing to the load of taxation which they have to bear, they have not the finance which is necessary for the capital investment required?
