Bill Presented: Bechuanaland (Bamangwato Reserve Administration) (22 May 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Instead of calming the situation, that seems to be the most irritating way of further irritating this tormented tribe, as the hon. Lady called it, and leaving them still in uncertainty and still unable to fix their loyalty upon somebody with a degree of permanency and with a chance for future stability. If the hon. Lady thinks that it is impossible for this tribe to fix their loyalty...

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has considered the recommendations of the Monopolies Commission in its Report on the supply of matches; and what action he proposes to take thereon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Match Industry (Commission's Report) (21 May 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Would my right hon. Friend consider the possibility of making a divesting decree in this case rather than adopting the recommendations of the Commission? Does he realise that a divesting decree offers the only chance of getting some competition going whereas if he adopts the system of administering prices, as recommended by the Commission, he will perpetuate the monopoly and land his own...

Oral Answers to Questions — Wireless and Television: Receivers (Wavelength Adaptors) (20 May 1953)

Budget Proposals (20 Apr 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The hon. Member for Sunderland, North (Mr. F. Willey) made the remarkable statement that this year's Budget was on exactly the same lines as last year's Budget—or something to that effect. If that is his judgment of the matter, all I can say is that he has missed a lot of good openings, because I should have thought it was quite clear to anybody that, whereas the purpose of the Budget...

Budget Proposals (20 Apr 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The right hon. Gentleman must not assume that the high Bank rate is necessarily to be retained for ever. I quoted from a reliable report of what he said, but if I am wrong I will withdraw. May I ask him this in return? Does he think it dangerous to stimulate demand at this moment?

Budget Proposals (20 Apr 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I take that to mean that the right hon. Gentleman is not too keen on stimulating demand.

Budget Proposals (20 Apr 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The purpose of all these reliefs is twofold—to stimulate not only demand but also investment. I suggest that my right hon. Friend has struck a very good balance in that matter, because in the Purchase Tax reliefs he is undoubtedly stimulating demand. Speaking as an eligible bachelor who has to do his own shopping—a very undesirable state of affairs—I may say that over the weekend, in...

Budget Proposals (20 Apr 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I come from a textile area and we are very sorry that nothing has been done this year for textiles, although something was done last year. Since that point has been raised, I am bound to remind the Committee that the hon. Member for Stalybridge and Hyde (Mr. Blackburn) made these remarks in the debate on Thursday: This year we are expecting that the improvement which has taken place in the...

Budget Proposals (20 Apr 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I understood that the reason for increased wages in the immediate past has been that more money was needed in the wage packet to pay for the cost of living. If, however, the cost of living is to be reduced, as clearly it will be by this Budget, it is wrong for the hon. Member for Northfield and others to encourage people to think that the reason still obtains. And nobody has denied that the...

Budget Proposals (20 Apr 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I am glad to hear it and I am obliged to my hon. Friend. However I would have preferred to see, as would most hon. Members, a global increase in the labour employed in all the branches of the engineering industry over the last year. However, I do not want to detain the Committee long because many hon. Members want to speak and we are drawing to the close of this debate. I ask myself and the...

Budget Proposals (20 Apr 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I was saying that as far as the distribution of labour is concerned, I am not at all satisfied with the present state of affairs, but that the other criticisms of the Budget are groundless. As far as the attraction of labour to the countryside is concerned, I am waiting to hear the answer and am hoping that the hon. Member for Workington (Mr. Peart) may catch the eye of the Chair so that he...

Budget Proposals (20 Apr 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Some of the miners want to do that themselves.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Imports from Europe (2 Apr 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is satisfied that the recently announced permission for the increased import of cotton textiles into the United Kingdom from the Continent of Europe will not damage domestic production; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Imports from Europe (2 Apr 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Is my right hon. Friend then satisfied that the domestic market is in a healthy enough condition to absorb the additional textiles that are bound to be thrown on it by the recent Government decision?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Engineering Contracts, Middle East (2 Apr 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Is not one of the objectionable practices of the Germans the giving of discriminatory taxes to relieve these exports?

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Aviation: Germany (Arrested Nazi) (1 Apr 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Would my right hon. and learned Friend not agree that the certificate originally produced by counsel to the respondent in these habeas corpus proceedings did not distinguish at all between English counsel and German counsel, and was a flat veto on any of the applicants seeing any of their counsel of any nationality?

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force: Atmospheric Pollution (18 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the Under-Secretary of State for Air what explanations his experts in the Meteorological Office have advanced for the inordinate amount of fog suffered by the country during recent months.

Oral Answers to Questions — Royal Air Force: Atmospheric Pollution (18 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Since fog has now become a major weapon of killing can we be assured by my hon. Friend that his experts are now in close touch with the Ministry of Fuel and Power as to the extent to which fog is caused by the unwelcome and undue amount of soot and smoke coming from the chimneys in our large cities?
