Cotton Industry (30 Jul 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: May I ask the hon. Gentleman a straight question? Is he or is he not in favour of permitting people to contract out?

Clause 2. — (Provisions as to Making of Certain Payments and Withhold- Ing of Payments.) (20 Oct 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The hon. Member for Leicester, North-West (Mr. Janner) knows that some of my hon. Friends and I support some of his misgivings and did so during the Second Reading debate. I believe he is on stronger ground with this Amendment than he was with the previous Amendment. Clearly, in an indemnity Bill one gives an indemnity to the persons or officials who, through no fault of their own, may have...

Foreign Affairs (5 Nov 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I understand that the objection of the right hon. Gentleman now to E.D.C. is that it is too small a cage and not because France is having pressure brought upon her. It is the same sized cage as it was in 1951, so how does the right hon. Gentleman reconcile his position now with his membership of the Government then?

Foreign Affairs (5 Nov 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Now that there is a chance of the poor British soldier being released from garrisoning the Suez Canal, I was interested in the concluding remarks of the right hon. Gentleman the Member for Greenock (Mr. McNeil). When he spoke this afternoon he indicated some hesitation and some change of view by the Opposition now that this thing might become a reality. He wondered whether the Opposition...

Foreign Affairs (5 Nov 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: It is a very large question and one which could not be answered tonight. I agree with the hon. Gentleman that that is what he said. I was producing a little evidence to show him that it is untrue and that it is no reply to me simply to repeat the assertion, which is all that he has done. There are two major things that need to be done in this Colony. One of them is the creation of a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Development Areas (19 Nov 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Will my right hon. Friend bear in mind that such a White Paper may well reveal that progress in the Development Areas has been such that it might be time to deschedule some of them?

Oral Answers to Questions — Timber Imports (Monopolies Commission Report) (23 Nov 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the Minister of State, Board of Trade, as representing the Minister of Materials, what action he proposes to take to implement the recommendations of the Report of the Monopolies Commission on the Supply of Imported Timber.

Oral Answers to Questions — Timber Imports (Monopolies Commission Report) (23 Nov 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Will my right hon. Friend tell his noble Friend that this is a comparatively simple restrictive practice to abolish, and would he impress on him that here is an opportunity for us to show that we really mean business in this matter?

Oral Answers to Questions — Shipping: Visiting Forces (Status) (25 Nov 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Is my hon. Friend aware that in the case of committal orders for civil debt many county court judges refuse to enforce them against visiting service personnel on the grounds that it is against the spirit of the Visiting Forces Act. Is that the considered view of the Foreign Office in this matter?

Orders of the Day — Housing Repairs and Rents Bill (30 Nov 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: One hesitates to intervene in a debate devoted so largely to Birmingham, but if I might give an example from another county, that of Lancashire, I think it will bring this debate back to earth. Before doing so, may I express my surprise at the fact that both in this debate and in the debate which we had on the White Paper only one Member has so far declared any interest in the sense that he...

Orders of the Day — Housing Repairs and Rents Bill (30 Nov 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I follow what the hon. Gentleman says, but I think he does my profession an injustice and, indeed, his intelligence an injustice. Perhaps he will consult his hon. Friend the Member for Lincoln (Mr. de Freitas) who knows as much about it, if not more, than I do. I wish to give the House an example of a case which I had at my surgery on Saturday, if I may, because so far we have had sweeping...

Orders of the Day — Housing Repairs and Rents Bill (30 Nov 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The local authority will not have them. She has offered those houses to the local authority and it will not take them. This Bill will help her case. She will be entitled to raise the rent, on a rough reckoning, by something like 3s. 6d. a week. I cannot get from her the amount of the difference between the gross ratable value and the net ratable value because those are big words beyond her...

Orders of the Day — Housing Repairs and Rents Bill (30 Nov 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Presumably they will have their extra staff there and in their housing departments and all round if they are to be universal landlords for millions of houses. Even if it is right as an ultimate objective for the local authority to take over the property which I do not think it is, hon. Members opposite must realise that that cannot happen now. It will take a long time for that to come about....

Orders of the Day — Housing Repairs and Rents Bill (30 Nov 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I do not know.

Orders of the Day — Housing Repairs and Rents Bill (30 Nov 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: No doubt. I dare say that many years ago some very wicked man made a lot of money out of them, but the point now is the situation presented to Mrs. Brennan, the local authority and the boys of how these houses are to be saved within the next few years. By raising these rents there seems to be a chance—I do not say a certainty—of saving them. That is what we all want to see done. I have...

Orders of the Day — Housing Repairs and Rents Bill (30 Nov 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I hope that the hon. Member will take it from me that she can prove to the court that the trustee property is of no value and that if she is challenged on the matter she is entitled to give the property away, because it is for the benefit of the trust that property of negative value should no longer remain in the trust. The provision in this Bill is the only thing to be done to save these...

Orders of the Day — Housing Repairs and Rents Bill (30 Nov 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The hon. Gentleman has followed my analogy. I ask the House to break up this fake and expose it as quickly as the fluoroscope has exposed the fake of the Piltdown Man. The truth is that both so far as the time factor is concerned and also so far as the money factor is concerned, the Opposition solution is no solution. Very hard things have been said from the other side of the House about...

Orders of the Day — Housing Repairs and Rents Bill (30 Nov 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The hon. and learned Member has mentioned me. For the record, I said that the £250 a year was spread over three houses.

Oral Answers to Questions — Fire Service: American (Acting Permit) (10 Dec 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the Minister of Labour why he has refused to grant a permit to Miss Yolande Donlan to enable her to act the part of Peter Pan in London this Christmas.

Oral Answers to Questions — Fire Service: American (Acting Permit) (10 Dec 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Is my right hon. and learned Friend aware that this application was with his Ministry for a fortnight and then had to be withdrawn because the management obviously had to get on with casting this piece owing to the imminence of Christmas? Is he also aware that during that fortnight an official of his Department, whose name I will give him, informed the management, on the telephone, that in...
