NATIONAL HEALTH SERVICE REORGANISATION BILL [Lords]: General Powers and Duties of Secretary of State to Provide Services (12 Jun 1973)

Mrs Freda Corbet: Has the hon. Gentleman never heard of London County Council, the predecessor of the GLC, which ran a very large ambulance service which was the core of the GLC service as it is known today?

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Replacement of Business Assets: Exemption to Companies Carrying on Mutual Business with Its Members (6 Jul 1971)

Mrs Freda Corbet: Has the hon. Gentleman given up all idea of what he used to say in opposition with regard to inflationary effect upon capital gains tax, which would have had a great deal to do with this case had the Government been able to rectify what I thought myself was an error on the part of the Labour Government?

Orders of the Day — Education (21 Apr 1971)

Mrs Freda Corbet: May one hon. Lady say to another hon. Lady the hon. Member for Merton and Morden (Miss Fookes), how much she enjoyed her maiden speech? I recall the maiden speech of the right hon. Lady on the Government Front Bench, which was of equally good calibre. The hon. Lady may well hope that some time in due course she will adorn the Front Bench. It was very pleasing to hear the comments of my...

Clause 11 (19 Jun 1968)

Mrs Freda Corbet: I hear workers say that they would actually lose at least half of the extra money they would be earning. Does not that confirm what the hon. Gentleman is saying about the need to inform people properly of what they lose?

Orders of the Day — Court Lees School (16 Nov 1967)

Mrs Freda Corbet: Mrs. Freda Corbet (Peckham) rose—

Orders of the Day — Court Lees School (16 Nov 1967)

Mrs Freda Corbet: May I remind my hon. and learned Friend that the headmaster previous to Mr. Haydon was the one who did not find the canes strong enough, and that that was three years before?

CITY OF LONDON (VARIOUS POWERS) BILL [Lords] (By Order) (26 Jul 1967)

Mrs Freda Corbet: I have been asked to intervene in the debate by the Southwark Borough Council, whose interest stems from its desire to build two large estates which will incorporate walkways. As has been so rightly said, it will be glad to have the experience of the City of London to see how far the powers being sought in the Bill will be satisfactory and adequate if it comes to seek such powers. I am,...

CITY OF LONDON (VARIOUS POWERS) BILL [Lords] (By Order) (26 Jul 1967)

Mrs Freda Corbet: I see no such inconsistency. Perhaps I should have prefaced my remarks by that last remark.

Orers of the Day: Clause 15. — (Penalty for Unauthorised Dumping.) (14 Apr 1967)

Mrs Freda Corbet: May I call the hon. Gentleman's attention to the wording of the Clause, which places the responsibility for the abandonment and the penalty firmly on the shoulders of the person who does the abandoning?

Orers of the Day: Clause 15. — (Penalty for Unauthorised Dumping.) (14 Apr 1967)

Mrs Freda Corbet: I draw the hon. Gentleman's attention to Clause 14 which says that it shall be the duty of the local authority to provide places where refuse may be deposited at all reasonable times. So the man whose car breaks down and who does not want to pay the garage £5 for towing it away can have it deposited at the place which the local authority pro- vides. This will probably be done at a small charge.

Orders of the Day — Civic Amenities Bill (8 Jul 1966)

Mrs Freda Corbet: The House has listened to a most informed set of speakers today, and I feel somewhat humble over the contribution that I am going to make. I would refer particularly to the speech by the right hon. Member for Streatham (Mr. Sandys), who has done so much in this direction, and whose activities when he was at the Ministry I myself recall. I particularly recall his great interest in the St....

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Further Provisions) Bill (1 Jul 1966)

Mrs Freda Corbet: I rise to support the Government, whose attitude is that the Bill is not practicable, though I would inform the House that my sympathy with the objects of the Bill is no less than theirs. Time passes so quickly now, and I never know how long ago a particular event occurred. It was perhaps two or three years ago that my attention was called to the problem at a meeting of retired teachers. It...

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Further Provisions) Bill (1 Jul 1966)

Mrs Freda Corbet: I am informed that this would be an extra class, which would cost more money. This would also represent a continuing loss. People in this class would not be like those in whom we are immediately interested.

Orders of the Day — National Insurance (Further Provisions) Bill (1 Jul 1966)

Mrs Freda Corbet: This will be a continuing class, because, whatever scheme is introduced, there are bound to be people who do not fulfil all the contributory requirements. This will go on. I am sure that my right hon. Friend must take account of the cost. Paying regard to the fact that this would be a breach in the contributory principle, bearing in mind that most of the needs of these people will be covered...

Private Business: Greater London Council (General Powers) Bill (2 May 1966)

Mrs Freda Corbet: Would not the hon. Gentleman admit that the purposes for which the Greater London Council wishes to have the power to make contributions to the boroughs, the four purposes which have been set out, constitute four very reasonable ones which are for the benefit of the boroughs and not at all for the greater glorification of the Council itself?

Orders of the Day — Crime (2 Feb 1966)

Mrs Freda Corbet: It would be very difficult to disagree with most of the remarks of the last speaker, the right hon. and learned Member for Epsom (Sir P. Rawlinson). My own feelings correspond very largely to the tone which has been set by previous speakers this afternoon. There have been years during which it has been necessary to campaign vigorously for penal reform. I can remember many years ago—more...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: New Clause. — (Transfer of Business on Retirement.) (5 Jul 1965)

Mrs Freda Corbet: It is a great pleasure for me to be able to welcome the concession made by my right hon. Friend, because I was instrumental in some small way in helping the hon. Member for Worthing (Mr. Higgins) to suggest that my right hon. Friend should give further consideration to the problem. I now add my plea to that of hon. Members opposite to the Chancellor in respect of people suffering from...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 31. — (Replacement of Business Assets.) (31 May 1965)

Mrs Freda Corbet: Would it be the case that in respect of a shop, with very little in the way of fixed assets which changed hands, as is likely to happen, for several thousands of pounds, my hon. and learned Friend would regard that as a minimal amount? A shop may change hands at quite a high figure. The assets, apart from stock and a few bits of furniture and fittings, would be very much goodwill. It would...

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 31. — (Replacement of Business Assets.) (31 May 1965)

Mrs Freda Corbet: Perhaps I can help my hon. and learned Friend. In that case, would there not be a waiting period before the goodwill could be accumulated in the new business in the new town? The money derived from the sale of the goodwill would probably be essential to keep the man while he established himself in his new premises in the new town.

Orders of the Day — FINANCE (No. 2) BILL: Clause 31. — (Replacement of Business Assets.) (31 May 1965)

Mrs Freda Corbet: Would my hon. and learned Friend bear in mind that it is customary when people set up shop for them to purchase a shop, to purchase a business and to purchase its goodwill? If they do not do that, they have to start up a completely new business with very great risks of not being able to make a livelihood. I remind my hon. and learned Friend that shopkeepers do not normally have skilled...
