Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, Supplementary Estimates, 1952–53; Ministry of Defence Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53; Navy, Army and Air Estimates, 1953–54; and Navy Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53.: North-Western Gas Board (Tariffs) (18 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Almost every month now in the North-West we get a new gas tariff. I am not sure whether the one I have in my hand is the latest although it is dated January, 1953. It is a grave matter, and since this is the only chance we have of discussing the tariffs and charges of the nationalised industries I am delighted that we have a little more time than usual in which to do so tonight. There are...

Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, Supplementary Estimates, 1952–53; Ministry of Defence Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53; Navy, Army and Air Estimates, 1953–54; and Navy Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53.: North-Western Gas Board (Tariffs) (18 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Exactly the same applies to my constituency, in the borough of Darwen. Exactly the same happened; it was a very efficient undertaking, but all that efficiency has gone for nothing because of the inefficiency in other places.

Civil Estimates and Estimates for Revenue Departments, Supplementary Estimates, 1952–53; Ministry of Defence Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53; Navy, Army and Air Estimates, 1953–54; and Navy Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53.: North-Western Gas Board (Tariffs) (18 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: My hon. Friend mentioned Section 9 of the Act. Is it the received view in his Ministry and in the Government as a whole that the powers provided for the consultative council procedure inevitably mean that the overriding and general words of Section 7 do not apply on the question of tariffs, and that under Section 7 the Minister has no power to give general directions relating to tariffs even...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Dockers (12 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Can my right hon. and learned Friend say how many of those who are surplus to requirements are over the age of 65?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Monopolies Commission (3 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Would not the Commission get on with their work even more quickly if they consisted of full-time rather than part-time members?

Orders of the Day — Cotton Board Levy (3 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: The statutory levy has now reached the high figure of nearly £500,000 yearly, and I do not think we can let this Order go without making one short comment. As the Parliamentary Secretary said when introducing the Order, this levy commands the respect and the agreement of the trade associations; but I do not think it right that it should be thought that it is unanimously welcomed by all the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Legal Aid Scheme (2 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the Attorney-General whether sufficient experience has now been gained of the working of the Legal Aid Scheme to enable him to make a statement thereon; if he is aware that an unassisted person is at a disadvantage when engaged in litigation with an assisted person; and what measures he proposes to redress this disequilibrium.

Oral Answers to Questions — Legal Aid Scheme (2 Mar 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Since an unassisted person has to pay his own costs even if he is successful in his litigation and an assisted person gets his costs paid for him even if he loses, does not my hon. and learned Friend think that this is a rather dangerous situation—one in which it is almost impossible to induce an assisted person to settle, even though he should settle, because there is no inducement for...

Development Areas and Distribution of Industry (25 Feb 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I will follow the first part of the speech of the hon. Member for Newton (Mr. Lee)—that relating to the Development Areas—and not the second and longer part which dealt with the present troubles of the A.E.U. I cannot pretend to have that lofty detachment about Development Areas that my hon. Friend the Member for Cheadle (Mr. Shepherd) has, as a potential Development Area has come lapping...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Savings Bank Deposits (Interest Rate) (12 Feb 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will permit an increase in the rate of interest paid on deposits in the Post Office Savings Bank.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Savings Bank Deposits (Interest Rate) (12 Feb 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Does my hon. Friend realise that the rate of interest is very small on these deposits, and has remained the same for nearly 100 years? Would he not ask his right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer to look into the matter again as there would be an encouragement in small savings if this rate of interest could be raised to the sort of rate of interest that is expected in other quarters?

Oral Answers to Questions — Korea: Irish Fruits and Sweets (Banned Imports) (11 Feb 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the Minister of Food to rescind the ban on the import of parcels containing canned fruit, dried fruit and sweets from Ireland.

Oral Answers to Questions — Korea: Irish Fruits and Sweets (Banned Imports) (11 Feb 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: But the reasons are entirely unconvincing. Would not my right hon. and gallant Friend agree that the housewife can be relied upon not to buy these fruits if they are too expensive? If they are sufficiently cheap, should she not have an opportunity of buying them?

Orders of the Day — Transport Bill: Clause 25. — (Miscellaneous Amendments as to Commission.) (10 Feb 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: I beg to second the Amendment.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Cotton Industry (Productivity Team Report) (5 Feb 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Would my right hon. Friend not agree that the leeway which undoubtedly exists in the case of some of these firms is due to the fact that, owing to the load of taxation which they have to bear, they have not the finance which is necessary for the capital investment required?

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53; Army Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53: Anglo-Argentine Trade Agreement (27 Jan 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Since I was not in the previous Parliament, it is perhaps easier for me to deal with this Agreement than it is for some others. My criticism of it is that it is so similar to the two previous Agreements, particularly in the lax method of its drafting. It does not seem to me that it lies in the mouth of the Opposition to criticise it. Insofar as it is different it certainly moves a little way...

Civil Estimates, Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53; Army Supplementary Estimate, 1952–53: Anglo-Argentine Trade Agreement (27 Jan 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: It is £92 million. It is all added up for the hon. Gentleman on page 19.

Class Vi. Vote 4: Export Credits (26 Jan 1953)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: There is just one question I should like to ask my hon. Friend. I suppose that his Department is subrogated to the rights of exporters in these contracts and is precisely like any other insurer. For that reason he has all the legal rights of any ordinary insurer as to taking action for breach of contract, and I hope he will pursue these to the utmost. In all these matters the feeling is...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Development Areas (16 Dec 1952)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: Can my hon. and learned Friend confirm that these boundaries are not fixed for all time, and that, if circumstances in the area permit, it would be possible to alter the boun- daries, either by widening or narrowing them, according to changing conditions?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Monopolies Commission (Appointments) (2 Dec 1952)

Mr Charles Fletcher-Cooke: asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will make all appointments to the Monopolies Commission full-time appointments, thus enabling the Commission to operate more speedily than at present.
