Greater Manchester (18 Jan 1980)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: It will be wiped out.

Greater Manchester (18 Jan 1980)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The debate has shown at least this amount of agreement—that the centre areas of Manchester are in a very bad way. The only dispute between the two sides of the House is why, and who is responsible. The debate was opened, unusually for a Private Member's motion, by the right hon. Member for Manchester, Ardwick (Mr. Kaufman) with a tremendous discharge of political acid. It would be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Multi-fibre Arrangement (17 Dec 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Will my hon. Friend consider initiating negotiations for the 1982 agreement? These things take a long time to get going. Could not he begin it on New Year's Day?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Partly Suspended Sentences (13 Dec 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: What is the difficulty in bringing this measure in immediately? Would it not be a useful, if minor, way of reducing the prison population, and is it not a weapon that the judges want?

Orders of the Day — Zimbabwe Bill (12 Dec 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Am I right in thinking that clause 3, unlike some clauses, comes into force immediately Royal Assent is given—that is, perhaps within hours and certainly within a day or two? If so, is there a possibility that the Patriotic Front will get its amnesty long before it has agreed, or at least finally agreed, to a ceasefire?

Oral Answers to Questions — Industry: European Community (Regional Development Fund) (10 Dec 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Will my hon. Friend consider moving away from the discredited doctrine of additionality in the distribution of these funds, particularly now that the areas in which they might be helpful are being reduced by Government policy?

Oral Answers to Questions — M6-M61 (5 Dec 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Does the Minister realise that all we are asking for after 11 years is that at least the line of route should be decided, or, if that is asking too much, that there should be an inquiry into the line of route? Neither option costs very much. Will he get on with it?

Oral Answers to Questions — North-West (4 Dec 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Has my hon. Friend considered the recommendation of the North-East Lancashire Development Association that the phasing out of intermediate area status for North-East Lancashire should take rather longer than the three years proposed?

Clause 6: Recovery of Awards of Multiple Damages (20 Nov 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: It is not narrow. It is enormous.

Clause 6: Recovery of Awards of Multiple Damages (20 Nov 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: In my view, the clause goes quite far enough, if not too far. In any other form of action than this new, strange but never- the less legitimate form of clawback, is there any precedent for bringing within our jurisdiction persons who are not within the jurisdiction of the court in the natural sense of the word? Maybe we ought to extend our juridical imperialism in the way that the Americans...

Orders of the Day — Protection of Trading Interests Bill (15 Nov 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: All courts have, latent within them, a deep imperialism. They all wish to extend their jurisdiction. No court is more inclined to do that than one suffused with an ideology that is almost equivalent to a religion. Anyone who has talked to American competition lawyers, whether on the Bench or at the Bar, will know that the Sherman and Clayton Acts in the United States are the equivalent of...

Orders of the Day — Protection of Trading Interests Bill (15 Nov 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: In the laws of the United Kingdom, I do not think that we have the triple damage remedy. Damages, or what may be called damages, have been awarded to persons beyond what they have sustained. However, it is a small branch of our law and not strictly comparable. I was saying that in other Commonwealth jurisdictions it occurs more frequently. I have certain misgivings about clause 6. It is one...

Orders of the Day — Protection of Trading Interests Bill (15 Nov 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The answer to that must be "No". That is a penalty, and no country will enforce the penalties of another.

European Community (Council of Agriculture Ministers Meeting) (14 Nov 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Is it seemly for my right hon. Friend to sit down with the French, while they are in contempt of court, and discuss new rules until such time as they have shown their willingness to obey the present rules? What is the point of discussing new regimes and new rules which can be broken in just the same way as the French are breaking the present ones?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Bull Hill Maternity Hospital (13 Nov 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the Secretary of State for Social Services whether he will intervene to prevent the threatened closure of the Bull Hill maternity hospital in Darwen.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Bull Hill Maternity Hospital (13 Nov 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Does my hon. Friend realise that that small and excellent hospital is exactly the type which he must have had in mind when he spoke recently about the need to preserve small hospitals? Will he keep a watchful eye on the bureaucratic and remote actions of the Lancashire area health authority?

Oral Answers to Questions — Oral Answers to Questions: Legal Services (12 Nov 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: As a matter of urgency, will my right hon. and learned Friend consider what the right hon. and learned Member for Warley, West (Mr. Archer) has just said—namely, that if law centres are to continue a statement of principle as to their central funding, or not as the case may be, is urgently required? Is he aware that I think that the recommendation for central funding is correct?
