Oral Answers to Questions — Korea: Irish Fruits and Sweets (Banned Imports) (11 Feb 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: But the reasons are entirely unconvincing. Would not my right hon. and gallant Friend agree that the housewife can be relied upon not to buy these fruits if they are too expensive? If they are sufficiently cheap, should she not have an opportunity of buying them?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Savings Bank Deposits (Interest Rate) (12 Feb 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will permit an increase in the rate of interest paid on deposits in the Post Office Savings Bank.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Savings Bank Deposits (Interest Rate) (12 Feb 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Does my hon. Friend realise that the rate of interest is very small on these deposits, and has remained the same for nearly 100 years? Would he not ask his right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer to look into the matter again as there would be an encouragement in small savings if this rate of interest could be raised to the sort of rate of interest that is expected in other quarters?

Development Areas and Distribution of Industry (25 Feb 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I will follow the first part of the speech of the hon. Member for Newton (Mr. Lee)—that relating to the Development Areas—and not the second and longer part which dealt with the present troubles of the A.E.U. I cannot pretend to have that lofty detachment about Development Areas that my hon. Friend the Member for Cheadle (Mr. Shepherd) has, as a potential Development Area has come lapping...

Oral Answers to Questions — Legal Aid Scheme (2 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the Attorney-General whether sufficient experience has now been gained of the working of the Legal Aid Scheme to enable him to make a statement thereon; if he is aware that an unassisted person is at a disadvantage when engaged in litigation with an assisted person; and what measures he proposes to redress this disequilibrium.

Oral Answers to Questions — Legal Aid Scheme (2 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Since an unassisted person has to pay his own costs even if he is successful in his litigation and an assisted person gets his costs paid for him even if he loses, does not my hon. and learned Friend think that this is a rather dangerous situation—one in which it is almost impossible to induce an assisted person to settle, even though he should settle, because there is no inducement for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Monopolies Commission (3 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Would not the Commission get on with their work even more quickly if they consisted of full-time rather than part-time members?

Orders of the Day — Cotton Board Levy (3 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The statutory levy has now reached the high figure of nearly £500,000 yearly, and I do not think we can let this Order go without making one short comment. As the Parliamentary Secretary said when introducing the Order, this levy commands the respect and the agreement of the trade associations; but I do not think it right that it should be thought that it is unanimously welcomed by all the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Dockers (12 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Can my right hon. and learned Friend say how many of those who are surplus to requirements are over the age of 65?

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what explanations his experts in the Meteorological Office have advanced for the inordinate amount of fog suffered by the country during recent months.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force: Atmospheric Pollution (18 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Since fog has now become a major weapon of killing can we be assured by my hon. Friend that his experts are now in close touch with the Ministry of Fuel and Power as to the extent to which fog is caused by the unwelcome and undue amount of soot and smoke coming from the chimneys in our large cities?

Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, Supplementary Estimates, 1952–53; Ministry of Defence Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53; Navy, Army and Air Estimates, 1953–54; and Navy Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53.: North-Western Gas Board (Tariffs) (18 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Almost every month now in the North-West we get a new gas tariff. I am not sure whether the one I have in my hand is the latest although it is dated January, 1953. It is a grave matter, and since this is the only chance we have of discussing the tariffs and charges of the nationalised industries I am delighted that we have a little more time than usual in which to do so tonight. There are...

Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, Supplementary Estimates, 1952–53; Ministry of Defence Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53; Navy, Army and Air Estimates, 1953–54; and Navy Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53.: North-Western Gas Board (Tariffs) (18 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Exactly the same applies to my constituency, in the borough of Darwen. Exactly the same happened; it was a very efficient undertaking, but all that efficiency has gone for nothing because of the inefficiency in other places.

Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, Supplementary Estimates, 1952–53; Ministry of Defence Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53; Navy, Army and Air Estimates, 1953–54; and Navy Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53.: North-Western Gas Board (Tariffs) (18 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: My hon. Friend mentioned Section 9 of the Act. Is it the received view in his Ministry and in the Government as a whole that the powers provided for the consultative council procedure inevitably mean that the overriding and general words of Section 7 do not apply on the question of tariffs, and that under Section 7 the Minister has no power to give general directions relating to tariffs even...

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: Germany (Arrested Nazi) (1 Apr 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Would my right hon. and learned Friend not agree that the certificate originally produced by counsel to the respondent in these habeas corpus proceedings did not distinguish at all between English counsel and German counsel, and was a flat veto on any of the applicants seeing any of their counsel of any nationality?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Imports from Europe (2 Apr 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is satisfied that the recently announced permission for the increased import of cotton textiles into the United Kingdom from the Continent of Europe will not damage domestic production; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Imports from Europe (2 Apr 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Is my right hon. Friend then satisfied that the domestic market is in a healthy enough condition to absorb the additional textiles that are bound to be thrown on it by the recent Government decision?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Engineering Contracts, Middle East (2 Apr 1953)
