Orders of the Day — Rating Bill: New Clause 3. — (Disregard of Service Disablement Pensions, &C.) (24 Feb 1966)

Mr Norman Cole: I wish to relate our discussion of all these new Clauses to the atmosphere in which the House debated the social services yesterday. I am sure that any outside observer watching the House at work yesterday would have said—I pay tribute to both sides here, and I am sure that this is probably inherent in the attitude of both sides—that the House as a whole was seeking to improve the social...

Orders of the Day — Rating Bill: Clause 1. — (Right to Pay Rates on Dwelling in England or Wales by Instalments.) (24 Feb 1966)

Mr Norman Cole: I rise only to clear up a doubt. I think the Parliamentary Secretary read the word "main" instead of "said". I think he meant to say "said", but I wanted to be clear that that is what we are voting on.

Orders of the Day — Rating Bill: Clause 9. — (Interpretation.) (24 Feb 1966)

Mr Norman Cole: I am glad that we have the provisions contained in this Bill, which we hope will soon become an Act. Let us pay tribute to what is in it, even though we may think that it should contain more. I say that in courtesy and respect to the Government for what they have done. When a Bill marks a new departure or sets a new pattern there are two reasons why amending legislation may be necessary in...

Orders of the Day — Rating Bill: Clause 9. — (Interpretation.) (24 Feb 1966)

Mr Norman Cole: Despite what the right hon. Gentleman said, we must look at the causation of the Bill for two reasons. First it is necessary because still, in the latter part of the 20th century, we have a high degree of poverty among a number of the people. [An HON. MEMBER: "Hear, hear."] I do not need endorsement for I am repeating what we all know. We have been told that about 2 million people will be...

Orders of the Day — Rating Bill: Clause 9. — (Interpretation.) (24 Feb 1966)

Mr Norman Cole: My hon. Friend the Member for Morecambe and Lonsdale (Mr. Hall-Davis), whom I cannot see here at the moment, did not say that. I listened very carefully to what my hon. Friend said. My hon. Friend said that he had tried to find a reason why certain items of people's finances were to be treated in a particular way. He said that he had found the answer in Clause 5.

Orders of the Day — Estate Agents Bill (28 Jan 1966)

Mr Norman Cole: With regard to the previous Clause about the disciplinary action to be taken by the requisite committee of the Estate Agents' Council, I am sure that my hon. Friend will wish to make it clear that it will not always be the case that the matter will be amenable to the law. There may be something which is disgraceful from the point of view of the estate agent, but which is not contrary to the law.

Orders of the Day — Estate Agents Bill (28 Jan 1966)

Mr Norman Cole: Leaving out the criminal sort of case he has been talking about, does the hon. Member realise that if a deposit is not left with the estate agent the member of the public might not come to him again?

Orders of the Day — Estate Agents Bill (28 Jan 1966)

Mr Norman Cole: I congratulate my hon. Friend the Member for Northants, South (Mr. Arthur Jones) on introducing the Bill. I do so not only because of the way he introduced it, and because of the terms of the Bill itself, but because this could be an historic occasion. I cannot recollect any Private Member's Bill of this length and comprehensive character about registration having got through the House during...

Orders of the Day — Estate Agents Bill (28 Jan 1966)

Mr Norman Cole: The hon. and learned Gentleman wit, of course, understand that the sort of cases he has in mind and the suggestion in a certain newspaper, to which reference has been made, would be the subject of the ordinary law of the land if they came to light in the deliberations of the disciplinary council.

Orders of the Day — Estate Agents Bill (28 Jan 1966)

Mr Norman Cole: The hon. Gentleman appreciates that both he and others who advocate that deposits should not be paid to estate agents are, ipso facto, saying that there is a suspicion that the estate agent is not honest or that he will do—

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Motorways (Fog) (1 Dec 1965)

Mr Norman Cole: asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the danger to road safety on motorways and other roads caused by fog and other weather conditions, he will have further consideration given to the device to be carried on vehicles to give warning of accidents, details of which have been sent to him, and about which representations have been made to him by the hon. Member for South Bedfordshire.

Oral Answers to Questions — Roads: Motorways (Fog) (1 Dec 1965)

Mr Norman Cole: Does not the right hon. Gentleman agree that as his Ministry is responsible for initiating road safety devices, it is up to his Ministry to give encouragement, by constructive criticism and in other ways, to those who contribute to the cause of road safety?

Orders of the Day — Pensions (Increase) Bill: Clause 1. — (Increase of Certain Pensions) (1 Dec 1965)

Mr Norman Cole: I want to refer to one remark made by the hon. Gentleman the Member for Westhoughton (Mr. J. T. Price) and then I will address my remarks specifically to the Amendment. The hon. Gentleman did not sneer, but he drew attention to the fact that previous Pensions Acts amounted almost to a triennial review. I think it is true to say that in every occupation in this country very few people go for...

Orders of the Day — Pensions (Increase) Bill: Clause 1. — (Increase of Certain Pensions) (1 Dec 1965)

Mr Norman Cole: I think that the hon. and learned Gentleman has really put the whole of the argument up to now in that last sentence. I was waiting for it—one can produce a number of examples to prove the argument either way. That is just the point. I am concerned with those who are suffering, not with those who are all right.

Orders of the Day — Pensions (Increase) Bill: Clause 1. — (Increase of Certain Pensions) (1 Dec 1965)

Mr Norman Cole: I have here a document sent to me by an organisation interested in this matter. The document says that if the 2 per cent, increase was given to a clerical officer who retired in 1949 the increase would be 2 per cent. of approximately £400, which is £8, making £407 against the 1957 retirement figure of £431. There is still a considerable difference.

Orders of the Day — Pensions (Increase) Bill: Clause 3. — (Power to Provide Increased Benefits for Persons Subject to Approved Superannuation Schemes.) (1 Dec 1965)

Mr Norman Cole: There are some mysterious words between the two commas in the Amendment. Surely if the successor to a local authority is another local authority it is a matter of fact, not of regulation. In any case of doubt, which are the regulations which will determine it? What happens if someone is disaffected? To whom will he have to apply, to the Ministry of Housing and Local Government or to the...

Orders of the Day — Pensions (Increase) Bill (18 Nov 1965)

Mr Norman Cole: I am sure the right hon. Gentleman would be the first to agree that although this increase of pensions over the years has more than kept pace with the 75 per cent. increase in the cost of living, it is no more than happens to the ordinary worker, whose affluence has increased in that period, and the same should apply to Civil Service pensioners.

Orders of the Day — Pensions (Increase) Bill (18 Nov 1965)

Mr Norman Cole: I echo the words of my hon. Friend the Member for Somerset, North (Mr. Dean) when I say that I am sure that hon. Members in all parts of the House welcome the Bill as far as it goes. Many of us have the reservation that it goes nowhere far enough. I wish to refer to one point which has not been mentioned in the debate but which the Chief Secretary made in introducing the Bill. He seemed to...

Orders of the Day — Rent Bill: Clause 1. — (Regulated Tenancies.) (1 Nov 1965)

Mr Norman Cole: We have heard two very extraordinary speeches. One was made by the hon. Member for Salford, East (Mr. Frank Allaun) and the other by the hon. Member for Orpington (Mr. Lubbock). The hon. Member for Salford, East seems to have taken on the mantle of the Socialist Party. I have been in this House for many years and I now find the Socialist Party fighting the battle of those who earn more than...
