Oral Answers to Questions — European Community (Agriculture Ministers' Meeting) (7 Mar 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Will the Minister say something about the effect of his meeting yesterday and the day before on the future of the European monetary system? Did the French and the Germans resolve their differences at this meeting? If not, what is the position?

Children Bill (23 Feb 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The growing number of illegitimate persons in this country suffer from one great disability. It is all the greater because it is not their fault. There is nothing they can do to remedy this handicap. There has been a universal expression of desire to see that they are not thereby disadvantaged more than circumstances compel. At one stage I thought, although I now think that I was wrong,...

Children Bill (23 Feb 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I apologise. Perhaps I said the same thing in rather more violent language. I do not take that view. This is a perfectly legitimate area for a Private Member's Bill, and, furthermore, it is legitimate to put it forward in the form of what one might call a manifesto rather than a Bill, which is what has been done. This is a legitimate use of the vehicle, and I shall certainly not oppose its...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: European Assembly (Direct Elections) (22 Feb 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will ensure that British subjects resident in the Netherlands who are given the right to vote in the election for the European Parliament do not lose their electoral rights in the United Kingdom.

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: European Assembly (Direct Elections) (22 Feb 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Since the Home Office has neglected its duty to enfranchise British subjects living in Europe for the forthcoming election, does not the Minister have some sense of shame in relying on the charity of the Dutch to give these people the franchise that they deserve?

Water Industry (Pay) (6 Feb 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The Secretary of State has said that the present unofficial dispute in the North-West is still rumbling on. Can he say what divisions of the North-West water board are at present having trouble, and what parts of those divisions? Can he also say whether the dispute has been merged in the general dispute, or does it still have a life of its own?

Orders of the Day — Rhodesia (Oil Sanctions) (1 Feb 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Among those who have pressed for an inquiry, has not the Lord President omitted President Kaunda of Zambia? Is not the reality of this situation that the Prime Minister, in order to get out of a difficult situation in Nigeria, promised President Kaunda that he would have this inquiry, and tonight is the pay-off for that?

Orders of the Day — Rhodesia (Oil Sanctions) (1 Feb 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: It is a fact.

Picketing (25 Jan 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Since the Attorney-General has said that neither he nor the Director is answerable to this House on prosecution policy and that it is a matter for the chief constables alone, can he suggest how prosecutions and prosecution policy can be questioned by hon. Members, since it is clear that there is already a difference of opinion about the degree to which intimidation can or cannot be classed...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rural Railways (24 Jan 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: May we take it that the mind is not closed to reopening some lines, and in any consideration of reopening will the Minister call the attention of British Rail to the Blackburn-Clitheroe line, which is much missed?

Water Supplies (North-West England) (23 Jan 1979)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I beg to ask leave to move the Adjournment of the House, under Standing Order No. 9, for the purpose of discussing a specific and important matter that should have urgent consideration, namely, to call attention to the dangers and hardships caused to thousands of families in Lancashire because of the unofficial strike of 600 workers in the Ribble division of the North-West water authority....

Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration (1 Dec 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: There is an Ombudsman in most universities already. He is called the visitor.

Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration (1 Dec 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: A very good man.

Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration (1 Dec 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: It is a great pleasure to follow the speech of the right hon. Member for Fulham (Mr. Stewart). I followed him into the Chair of the Select Committee on the Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration some years ago. Indeed, he is one of the founding fathers of that office and he is right to be proud of his child. I think that this is the moment, when for the first time we have a non-civil...

Parliamentary Commissioner for Administration (1 Dec 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: And television licences. Almost always, in such cases—I am talking about personal responsibility of the Minister, not vicarious responsibility—the Minister immediately stages a debate and pre-empts the work of the Committee, and so the work of the Committee thereafter is useless. Once the Minister has made his statement and almost inevitably exonerated himself, it is not possible for the...

Business of the House (30 Nov 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Will the Leader of the House consider a debate about the fact that we now know that there are 5,000 vacancies for skilled workers in the North-West alone? Will he consider whether we should have an urgent discussion on this extraordinary paradox and on the failure of the training programme, both governmental and private, to produce sufficient skilled workers amidst 1½ million unemployed?

Business of the House (30 Nov 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: At this time of the Session, when no one can say that we are all that busy, unlike June and July when a lot of water comes up against the dam and when the Government's position gets difficult, why cannot we have a debate within the 40 days on a Prayer with a negative resolution?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Indonesia (Mr. W. S. Rendra) (26 Jul 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Is it not a fact that within the last 24 hours Indonesia has released no fewer than 4,000 political prisoners? If that is true, should not the hon. Gentleman turn his attention to other countries that have political prisoners, such as the Soviet Union, and to countries whose Governments claim to have political prisoners, such as that of Mr. Andrew Young, even if they have not got them?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade: Cotton Yarn and Knitted Shirts (Greece) (24 Jul 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Have the Greek authorities connived at this extraordinary over-fulfilment of a year's quota in four months? If so, what action do the EEC or the Government propose to take against the authorities themselves?

Orders of the Day — Unemployment (24 Jul 1978)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The hon. Member for Truro (Mr. Penhaligon) ended on a constructive note when he said that in regard to mass unemployment, particularly unskilled unemployment, it is time to stop pretending that anybody will be able to bring the number of unemployed down rapidly. I make no such pretence, and I do not believe that my party does. It is realistic to aim at a much more modest target. As the...
