Orders of the Day — Colony Holidays Schemes (23 Jul 1969)

Mr Charles Haseldine: I am glad to have had the opportunity to catch your eye at this time, Mr. Speaker, following a very long night's vigil, to raise the issue—which, I am sure, is of wide interest and appropriate at this time—of the wider provision of colony holidays for schoolchildren. Virtually the whole of the school population is now on the long summer vacation and, undoubtedly, the children are feeling...

Finance Bill ( 6 May 1969)

Mr Charles Haseldine: Although I know that my right hon. Friend does not accept the argument, does not he concede that, if a payroll tax were inaugurated, one would still have an easy method of collection?

Finance Bill ( 6 May 1969)

Mr Charles Haseldine: The right hon. Member for Flint, West (Mr. Birch) will not expect me to follow him. Of the six Parts of the Finance Bill comprising 53 Clauses, I find myself in support of five Parts and 51 Clauses. I am sure that my hon. Friends on the Front Bench will not expect that I shall be able to record my support of Part V, which comprises Clauses 43 and 44. I was able within four days of the...

Finance Bill ( 6 May 1969)

Mr Charles Haseldine: The National Grocers Federation made a statement recently which follows very closely that of the retail consortium, but its estimate is that prices could rise as much as 4 per cent. The grocers' estimate is that the measures will put up the grocery bill by at least 2 per cent. This is in the whole market of £3,000 million a year, which means that housewives must pay out in the coming year...

Orders of the Day — Universities (29 Jan 1969)

Mr Charles Haseldine: I cannot accept the view of the hon. Member for Cambridge (Mr. Lane) that the universities face the greatest crisis of all time. My right hon. Friend told the House today of the position since the Labour Government came to office, showing that no less than £120 million has been added to expenditure, with an increase of 39 per cent. in the number of students at universities, colleges of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: Industrial Development (Yorkshire and Humberside) (29 May 1968)

Mr Charles Haseldine: While thanking my right hon. Friend for that assurance, may I ask whether he would accept that Yorkshire and Humberside has a tremendous potential which must not be frustrated, and that nothing should be done at this time to weaken the potential development of the region?

Oral Answers to Questions — Board of Trade: North-East Development Council (29 May 1968)

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Affairs: North-East Development Council (Advertising Campaign) (23 May 1968)

Mr Charles Haseldine: Is my right hon. Friend aware that his reply was well received in Yorkshire and Humberside? But will he take all possible steps, along with his right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade and other Ministers, to ensure that nothing further is done to aggravate the situation which results in unfair competition from development areas on areas such as Yorkshire and Humberside? Will he...

Clause 2.: Trade Description. ( 8 May 1968)

Mr Charles Haseldine: I support the Amendment, although I do not propose to follow the hon. Member for Morecambe and Lonsdale (Mr. Hall-Davis) in his remarks. While I agree with a great deal of what he has to say about the problem of reduced prices, I felt that I was back in Committee on the Finance Bill, becoming involved in more detailed matters. The tenor of the Committee on this Bill was one of unanimity, and...

Clause 23.: Defence of Mistake, Accident, etc. ( 8 May 1968)

Mr Charles Haseldine: I do not wish unduly to prolong the proceedings, but at this juncture it is important, in supporting my hon. Friend the Member for Rushcliffe (Mr. Gardner), to draw attention to the problem of services. The hon. Member for Beckenham (Mr. Goodhart) has also paid particular attention to this in Committee and today. We must not overlook the deplorable circumstances of some holidays,...

Orders of the Day — TRADE DESCRIPTIONS (No. 2) BILL [Lords] (22 Feb 1968)

Mr Charles Haseldine: I am sure that the right hon. and learned Member for Chertsey (Sir L. Heald) will forgive me if I do not follow him in his arguments. This Bill will be readily welcomed by consumers, but only when they are fully aware of the protection afforded by it. The Co-operative movement, which has championed the cause of the consumer throughout its long history, gives a general welcome to this Bill, as...

Orders of the Day — TRADE DESCRIPTIONS (No. 2) BILL [Lords] (22 Feb 1968)

Mr Charles Haseldine: I presume the hon. Gentleman is aware that the C.W.S., to whom he has alluded, is but one part of the Co-operative movement? Is he aware of the educational facilities provided within the Co-operative movement? Does he know of the large residential college the only one of its kind provided by a retail organisation—at which people are trained and prepared to undertake a good deal of work in...

Orders of the Day — TRADE DESCRIPTIONS (No. 2) BILL [Lords] (22 Feb 1968)

Mr Charles Haseldine: I think it would be advisable if the hon. Gentleman were to equip himself more fully with the facts before making that kind of statement, because he is wrong.

Estimates Committee Reports (Manpower Training for Industry) ( 6 Feb 1968)

Mr Charles Haseldine: I should like to associate myself with the good wishes expressed by my hon. Friend the Member for Woolwich, West (Mr. Hamling) to the Minister on the progress made with the Industrial Training Act. The Report we have read and the speech we have heard assures us of continuing progress in this field. In my constituency we are at the centre of the Wool, Jute and Flax Training Board, and I was...

Estimates Committee Reports (Manpower Training for Industry) ( 6 Feb 1968)

Mr Charles Haseldine: The hon. Gentleman will agree that one is capable of being misunderstood if one uses the wide term "empire building". I think that it would be wrong to charge the Engineering Board with empire building. It seems to me that it has a very efficient scheme for employees in engineering. The problem is that the firm is involved not with engineering, although metal is worked, but because the pin...

Mr Charles Haseldine: asked the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs when he anticipates receiving the report of the Committee set up under the chairmanship of Sir Joseph Hunt; and if he will make a statement.

Orders of the Day — Agriculture (Miscellaneous Provisions) Bill ( 9 Nov 1967)

Mr Charles Haseldine: I rise to convey a word of appreciation to my right hon. Friend for the consideration which he has given to the representations that have been made about exemptions from Part I of the Restrictive Trade Practices Act, 1956. Clause 38 proposes to remove one of the several anomalies in that Act, and this is generally welcomed by the Agricultural Central Co-operative Association. The fact that it...
