Orders of the Day — British Museum Library (16 Nov 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: I could hardly have had a better setting for my final speech in this House than a debate—and on a subject like this it would be improper to refer to the number of hon. Members present, because that might result in further delay—in which two vastly important subjects have been under discussion with virtually no back benchers permitted to take any real part at all. The debate on approved...

Orders of the Day — British Museum Library (16 Nov 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: I am much obliged to my right hon. Friend, because I have to consider other hon. Members who have a better right than I to speak. I wanted to speak as just an ordinary bloke who uses the British Museum; who sits in the Reading Room. I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for demolishing some of the dafter arguments that have been put in opposition. No one has put forward the vital arguments,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Armed Forces (Young Recruits) (8 Nov 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he is now in a position to make a statement promised on 13th March last on the position of men who enlisted under the age of 18 years.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Armed Forces (Young Recruits) (8 Nov 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: Surely a definite undertaking was given to the House during an Adjournment debate on 13th March? Since then there have been examples to which I have called the attention of the Ministry of Defence of exceptional lack of care for men who had enlisted and had arranged and saved for their discharge.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Polaris Submarines (8 Nov 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: In view of the Prime Minister's clear undertaking on this question, may we be assured that all these had, at the time of the 1964 election, reached a stage at which it was impossible to stop their progress or cancel their production because they could not be adapted for any other purposes?

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Discharge by Purchase (Personal Case) (8 Nov 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: asked the Secretary of State for Defence why the hon. Member for Oldham, West was told that the sum of £150 deposited with his commanding officer by a soldier whose name has been given to him could not have been paid in respect of his purchased discharge as the correct figure was £200 and was later told the correct figure was £150 but the discharge had been deferred for other reasons.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Defence: Discharge by Purchase (Personal Case) (8 Nov 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: Is not my hon. Friend aware that this lad was quite aware of his age and that he was going to be 21 when he saved up his money and deposited it? Is there any other case of a lad handing £150 to his colonel in that regiment? How has the money been invested and at what interest? What was it paid for but to secure his discharge, which has been held up for three years? He has been sent abroad...

SEXUAL OFFENCES (No. 2) BILL: Clause 3. — (Revised Punishments for Homosexual Acts.) (3 Jul 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: Will the hon. Member tell the House, and, if not, will he tell the Chair, what he meant by those words?

SEXUAL OFFENCES (No. 2) BILL: Clause 3. — (Revised Punishments for Homosexual Acts.) (3 Jul 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: On a point of order. If you, Mr. Deputy Speaker, did not hear the words used to which I call attention—

SEXUAL OFFENCES (No. 2) BILL: Clause 3. — (Revised Punishments for Homosexual Acts.) (3 Jul 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: On a point of order. As one who was intimately connected politically with a victim, whom I respected and trusted and whose word I always believed, a man of great courage in the service of his country, a man of integrity, a man who was sent to prison for four years from this House after having already endured several years' imprison- ment—[An HON. MEMBER: "What is the point of order?"]

SEXUAL OFFENCES (No. 2) BILL: Clause 3. — (Revised Punishments for Homosexual Acts.) (3 Jul 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: The point of order, if it is not understood, is that the hon. Member for Birmingham, Selly Oak (Mr. Gurden) has said that hon. Members have a personal interest in the Bill. He started to say that the promoters of the Bill had a personal interest and then he said, which was even more offensive, that he did not insist that they had a personal interest. What does he mean? If we are to bandy...

SEXUAL OFFENCES (No. 2) BILL: Clause 3. — (Revised Punishments for Homosexual Acts.) (3 Jul 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: On a point of order. May we have a Ruling on that observation? May I say to the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, who was wrongly rebuked last week for making a sensible observation about a case that was sub judice, that I do not require his fraternal advice whether I should intervene. During the last six months I have not intervened in the debates in the House for more than a...

Orders of the Day — Medical Termination of Pregnancy Bill: Clause 1. — (Medical Termination of Pregnancy.) (29 Jun 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: On a point of order. Would it not be fair to say that these proceedings have reached the stage of complete farce and that the hon. Member for Chelmsford (Mr. St. John-Stevas) is making quite obviously and quite deliberately—

Orders of the Day — Medical Termination of Pregnancy Bill: Clause 1. — (Medical Termination of Pregnancy.) (29 Jun 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: May I submit that that was a point of order? It is a clear point of order. The hon. Member who moved the Amendment pointed out that when you were not in the Chair the word "well-being" had been deleted. [HON. MEMBERS: "No".] He said that this was a consequential Amendment which need not be discussed. The hon. Member for Chelmsford, who has been doing this all night, is now, with appropriate...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: New Clause No. 37. — (Repayments to Charities.) (21 Jun 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: My right hon. Friend the Chancellor has an admirable opportunity of doing a great service to some very important charities by imposing a swingeing tax upon the £11 million of tax-free capital profit which Lord Hill dished out last week to some unconnected "odds and sods", and I hope that he will do it. By that means he will make an extensive provision for social work in many fields of...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: New Clause No. 37. — (Repayments to Charities.) (21 Jun 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: There has been an extension of the rather foolish symbolism which we import from America to celebrate such occasions as Mother's Day, Father's Day, Uncle Arthur's Day and Uncle Sam's Day. More recently, we have seen buttonholes saying "Pop is good for you", "Down with Cassius Clay", and so on. However, it is not an easy industry and, as I say, this tax has been imposed for 27 years. I...

Orders of the Day — Leasehold Reform Bill: New Clause No. 1. — (Enfranchisement Where Landlord Cannot Be Found.) (20 Jun 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: I have a direct personal interest in some Clauses of the Bill, though not this one, because my landlords are the Dulwich College Estate governors. When I was a member of the Leasehold Committee, years ago, and a member of the ad hoc Committee in this House on leasehold, I had no interest, and up to that time never had. It is fortuitous that I now have a leasehold house and I have,...

Orders of the Day — Leasehold Reform Bill: Clause 3. — (Provisions Where Landlord Desires to Sell Freehold.) (20 Jun 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: I am coming to the Clause, Mr. Speaker. Under the Clause, the sort of ground rent payable is 16s. 6d. for six months, as it was in the last case that I handled. One man had to collect fourteen 16s. 6d.s, many of the roads were unmade, and there were frightful problems over repairs. It is difficult to trace the landlord in many cases. There is some strength in the Opposition's argument that...

Orders of the Day — Leasehold Reform Bill: New Clause 6. — (Purchase Notice Relating to Common Parts of a Leasehold Estate.) (20 Jun 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: I do not want to make purely verbal points, but does the hon. Gentleman realise that, in every 999-year lease in Oldham, this would enable the authority to be compelled to take over every drain—and just the drains—that serves two adjoining houses? I doubt whether one house in Oldham is not confronted with that problem and the local authority would have to be responsible for all such drains.

Orders of the Day — Leasehold Reform Bill: Clause 1. — (Tenants Entitled to Enfranchisement or Extension.) (20 Jun 1967)

Mr Charles Hale: The hon. Member for Barons Court (Mr. Richard) must not use the word "extraordinary" about the history of leasehold reform. If he had had 22 years of trying to get a Measure introduced, with Labour Governments, if he was in my position of recalling the battles held and the advice and instruction that I had from a Left-wing Attorney-General, who at the moment is writing to The Times as my...
