Orders of the Day — Baking Industry (Hours of Work) Bill (25 Jan 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I hope that it has not escaped the notice of the House that if we were a large bakery we would already have done 25 minutes of night work, if the terms of the Bill as at present drafted had become law. We would also have worked a complete night week, even though we adjourned this minute and did not resume for the rest of the week, so strictly is the term "night work" denned for large...

Orders of the Day — Baking Industry (Hours of Work) Bill (25 Jan 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: No Committee, however eminent, is going to persuade me that conditions in Scotland are exactly the same as conditions in England, because, first of all, they have to deal with totally different human material. I am sure that the hon. Member would be the first to agree with that. There are many other differences as well. I think that the real objection to the formula of "Half the time" as...

Orders of the Day — Baking Industry (Hours of Work) Bill (25 Jan 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Yes. That does not satisfy me in the very least. Before we give enforcement officers these Star Chamber powers, I believe a special case must be made out, each time, to do what is otherwise absolutely contrary to the criminal law of England. The Judges' Rules and other safeguards, which have been built up carefully throughout the ages, deal with crimes far more important than the abominable...

Orders of the Day — Baking Industry (Hours of Work) Bill (25 Jan 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Both my hon. Friend the Member for the Isle of Thanet (Mr. Rees-Davies) and myself did not oppose this Bill or the principle which underlies it.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Terylene Fur Coats (4 Feb 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Are these terylene fur coats animal, vegetable or mineral?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Anti-Trust Legislation (11 Feb 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Is the Minister aware that the enforcement of anti-trust legislation in the United States costs that country millions of dollars a year, and that, however laudable the object, we could not possibly afford that method?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Tate Gallery Administration (18 Feb 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Has the right hon. Gentleman considered the new situation that has arisen since the resignation of Mr. Graham Sutherland, and will he take that into account when keeping this matter under review, as I hope he will continue to do?

Orders of the Day — Cotton Bill (18 Feb 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: As one of the Lancashire Members whom the right hon. Gentleman is seeking to attack, I would say that the reason we did not intervene was that the position was put so well by the President of the Board of Trade.

Orders of the Day — Cotton Bill (18 Feb 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: indicated dissent.

Oral Answers to Questions — Cyprus: Human Rights (24 Feb 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Will my right hon. Friend agree that laws against sedition which are not at present enforced should either be repealed or enforced, because there is nothing worse than having laws openly defied, and not having them either enforced or repealed?

Foreign Ministers' Conference, Berlin (24 Feb 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The speech of the hon. Member for South Ayrshire (Mr. Emrys Hughes), which we have just heard, was directed chiefly to the right hon. Member for Lewisham, South (Mr. H. Morrison), and it would be impertinence on my part to seek to reply for him. The hon. Member for South Ayrshire said that he did not share the Russian point of view. He then proceeded to support some of the attacks on the...

Foreign Ministers' Conference, Berlin (24 Feb 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: That may well be, but surely the hon. Member will admit—he probably boasts of the fact that power and wealth have been on one side in this country when his party has been fighting—that in 1945 his party won the Election hand over fist. It is absurd to say that elections cannot be free because there are discrepances in the economic system. If that is his objection to the Eden Plan, then it...

Foreign Ministers' Conference, Berlin (24 Feb 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Although some hon. Members opposite disagree with the line that the majority of their party take, I think we should today examine the situation in another country which is divided, although I do not think as evenly as the party opposite, but nevertheless divided, and that, of course, is France. If the Foreign Secretary of France with all his experience of the Germans, German rearmament and...

Foreign Ministers' Conference, Berlin (24 Feb 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: When France entered into the Paris and Bonn Agreements, she knew what her imperial commitments, whether "cold" or "hot," were likely to be. There has been no change in the situation since then. She knew that she had overseas France to consider, and in that consideration she took that into account. The fact that there is still, unfortunately, fighting in Indo-China can have no logical...

Foreign Ministers' Conference, Berlin (24 Feb 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I am not giving way further on that. The hon. Member is keen on interrupting, but the time comes when one must draw the line. Apart from our own assurances to France in our association with the European Defence Community, one other matter is the question of the Saar. It is in the news that almost immediately after the termination of the Berlin Conference, France and Germany are to reopen...

CHARITABLE TRUSTS (VALIDATION) BELL [Lords] (10 Mar 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: This is a very curious Bill and, were it not for the fact that the House is anxious to get on to other business, I should have liked to make some criticism of the principle underlying it. It is entirely retro- spective in operation and deals with an artificial slice in the long history of charities which is bound in the beginning by this shock of the decided cases—a shock which I do not...

Orders of the Day — Canal Zone (Conditions) (11 Mar 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: rose—

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: T.A. Civilian Clerks (Pay) (13 Apr 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the Secretary of State for War if he will consider raising the pay of civilian clerks attached to the Territorial Army.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: T.A. Civilian Clerks (Pay) (13 Apr 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: As the Territorial Army seems to be built on a mountain of paper, and since the dealings with that paper at the battalion orderly room level sometimes leave something to be desired, does not my right hon. Friend think that it would improve both the efficiency and, in the end, the economy of the Service if the conditions of civilian clerks could be made more attractive, because at present, I...

Oral Answers to Questions — Poland and Hungary (Trade Negotiations) (28 Apr 1954)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Does the same negative report apply to negotiations with Bulgaria and Rumania?
