European Council (Copenhagen Meeting) (10 Apr 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Reverting to the question of European solidarity against terrorism, is the Prime Minister aware that in the European Parliament the Irish delegation was equally solid with all others in a unanimous vote that all members of the European Community should ratify the anti-terrorist and anti-hijacking conventions? In his conversation with the Prime Minister of the Republic of Ireland, did the...

European Community (Council of Ministers' Meetings) (20 Mar 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: When the Foreign Ministers meet to discuss political cooperation "on the margin", as I think the Minister for some reason described it, will they be considering whether they can achieve any common position on the events in the Arab-Israeli world, or have the EEC Ministers finally given up all hope of achieving a common position in that respect?

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: European Commission (Infrastructure Proposals) (1 Mar 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: As we are told that the economic difficulties are getting so much better, is it possible that the Government will give the working party's paper a fair wind? Is the working party considering the Channel tunnel seriously?

European Community (Jurisdiction and Judgments Convention) (27 Feb 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: It is not a technicality.

European Community (Jurisdiction and Judgments Convention) (27 Feb 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I now understand why this draft convention has not come before any of the organs of the EEC with which I am connected, in particular not before the Legal Affairs Committee of the European Parliament. It does not look as if it ever will, because it is not to be promulgated by the EEC at all in the form of a directive, or a regulation, or any such instrument. It is, as it were, in parallel with...

European Community (Jurisdiction and Judgments Convention) (27 Feb 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: There may be an equality of hardship, but there may be a disequilibrium of hardship. I do not know, and it is a difficult calculation to make when there are nine and possibly 12 member States. But I do not see the necessity for having to make this calculation. It seems to me that the present system works perfectly well. There is no distortion of competition. There are no problems such as the...

European Community (Jurisdiction and Judgments Convention) (27 Feb 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The obligation is to negotiate, and negotiate in good faith, to see whether it is possible to agree to adaptations to suit our purpose. If it is not possible to agree—as, with all the good faith in the world, it sometimes is not—about the adaptations, where is the breach of faith?

Orders of the Day — Scotland Bill: 'bill of Rights for Scotland (1 Feb 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: My hon. Friend is putting forward his proposal as a tempting experiment and suggesting that we should try it out on the Scots. There is a certain attraction in that, but until the English followed the Scottish example, as my hon. Friend hopes they would, would there not be a great disparity between Scotsmen, who would have recourse to their own courts, and Englishmen, who would not?

European Assembly Elections Bill (Allocation of Time) (26 Jan 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: This is a rather more momentous occasion than is perhaps appreciated by some hon. Members. It is also a difficult decision for some of us to make. For some other hon. Members it is a very easy decision. Those hon. Members surrounding me at the moment dislike the EEC, dislike direct elections, dislike the guillotine and dislike the Opposition Front Bench. Therefore, they knew perfectly well...

European Assembly Elections Bill (Allocation of Time) (26 Jan 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: It would be a very long guillotine, but it is a ridicu- lously long Bill. I dare say that if a Bill were long and complicated there might be no timetable. But that is a difficult thing to imagine. However, the possibilities of that have diverted me from my great peroration which I undertook to deliver within eight minutes of getting to my feet. I think it important that this country should...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Multi-Fibre Arrangement (12 Dec 1977)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Nevertheless, does this new position mean that the bad and deleterious practice of giving a 6 per cent. increase in the quota every year to overseas imports, irrespective of the state of trade, has completely disappeared in EEC negotiations?

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster (Engagements) (5 Dec 1977)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The right hon. Gentleman did not mention any meetings with representatives of small businesses today. Are we to understand that his mandate to look after the problems of small businesses has lapsed? If not, will he prepare to answer Questions on this important problem when he next answers Questions?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Terrorism (17 Nov 1977)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Will the right hon. Gentleman tell us something about his recent meetings with the other Ministers of the Interior of the European Economic Community? Is it correct that these Ministers meet regularly, and is the right hon. Gentleman satisfied with the degree of harmonisation of administrative measures, as well as that of the signature and ratification of the conventions, to deal with this...

Scotland Bill (14 Nov 1977)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The right hon. Member for Down, South (Mr. Powell) advised us to look at the reserve powers of the Scottish Assembly, which are set out on pages 48 and 49 of the Bill. I have done so. They go from Group 1, health, through social welfare, education, housing, local government, land use, and so on, and I notice that at Group 17 we have fire services and fire precautions. At 3.30 tomorrow, the...

Inner Cities (8 Nov 1977)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Will the Minister resist the temptation of regarding the dead centre of a conurbation as necessarily the worst hit? In talking about inner cities, does he realise that the outlying boroughs of Greater Manchester, such as Bolton, on any yardstick are just as badly hit as Salford and Manchester? In those circumstances, although we are grateful for the help to Bolton, would the Minister consider...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Channel Tunnel (20 Jul 1977)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The right hon. Gentleman surely knows that there is a great moment coming at which European funds will become available. Will he respond a little more favourably, therefore, to his hon. Friend the Member for Fife, Central (Mr. Hamilton)? If these funds are available, would it not be wrong to look at them coldly and to reject this possibility, which may not recur?

European Council Meeting (30 Jun 1977)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: In his report to the conference on his conversations with Marshal Brezhnev, did the President of the French Republic say what sort of reaction he had had during his conversations with the Marshal on the subject of Basket III of the Helsinki Agreement and, in particular, on the treatment of those citizens of the Soviet Union who have been monitoring progress on human rights since the signing...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Multi-Fibre Arrangement (27 Jun 1977)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Is the right hon. Gentleman satisfied that the European stance—which appears to be one of global quotas and no categorisation with- in those quotas—will sufficiently protect the British textile industry?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Helsinki Final Act (4 May 1977)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Following upon that, would the Minister care to comment on the apparent contradiction in the Helsinki agreement between that part of it which swears that no member will interfere in the internal affairs of another nation and, a few pages later, quite properly, obligates all members to pay special regard towards human rights within their own territories? When in Helsinki, will the Foreign...

European Community (Council of Ministers' Meetings) (6 Apr 1977)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: When the hon. Gentleman welcomes progress on the accession of both Greece and Portugal he carries the House with him. However, did he and the other Ministers discuss the danger that in well-meaning intentions to support the cause of democracy in those countries by giving them early membership we may be exposing their economies to strains which membership imposes and which they are not yet...
