Oral Answers to Questions — Canal Zone (Evacuated Families) (28 Nov 1951)

Mr Norman Cole: asked the Minister of Defence what permanent arrangements have been, or are being, made for the accommodation of the wives and families of Service personnel being evacuated from the Suez Canal Zone.

Oral Answers to Questions — Canal Zone (Evacuated Families) (28 Nov 1951)

Mr Norman Cole: In thanking him for that answer. may I ask the Minister of Defence whether he is satisfied that the permanent accommodation to be supplied is to be both suitable and adequate for these people, who have been passing through unhappy circumstances, so that they may have some degree of comfort when they come back to this country?

Defence (5 Mar 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: In rising to address this House for the first time, I hope that I may obtain the necessary indulgence from the House for the few remarks that I have to make. I do not imagine that these will be provocative, as I want to address them to Part VII of the White Paper which deals with Civil Defence. I will reserve what ideas I have about provocation to a future occasion, when perhaps the House...

Orders of the Day — Heating Appliances (Fireguards) Bill (14 Mar 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: This debate proves beyond doubt the value of Private Members' time for drawing attention to the need for and obtaining legislation dealing with matters affecting the health and welfare of the community. This Bill is a good Bill, and so far as we can see there is not much doubt that it will at least get a Second Reading. It is right that it should, because it follows upon other legislation...

Transport Fare Increases (28 Apr 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: When all the tumult and shouting about this matter of fares, both as regards London and the rest of the country, has finished, the main problem will still remain; that is, if it is necessary for the Transport Commission to have this income, how, in the absence of a subsidy, the income is to be found from the travelling public. We hope that it will be possible to maintain the standstill on...

Transport Fare Increases (28 Apr 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: That is the whole burden of my complaint. We have had the tramcars removed, we have had new and expensive buses put on the road in the London Transport area. I wonder how many hon. Members have seen the splendid Green Line buses which are available for their transport? I doubt whether during the last five or six years it was necessary to provide new and such expensive buses for the people of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence: Training Classes (22 May 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in the interests of publicity and recruiting for Civil Defence, he will consider with the authorities concerned the establishment of the same night each week over the whole country for Civil Defence training and recruiting with a view to that night becoming popularly known as "Civil Defence Night"; and, if this is not practicable,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence: Recruiting Publicity (22 May 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in the interests of publicity and recruiting for Civil Defence, he will consider with the authorities concerned the desirability of taking advantage, so far as can be arranged, of the opportunities provided by fetes, shows and other functions held by other bodies during the summer, for the dissemination of Civil Defence publicity...

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence: Recruiting Publicity (22 May 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: While thanking my right hon. and learned Friend for that answer, may I ask if his Department would also inquire into the other methods of making use of the facilities of local associations and societies whose co-operation, I am sure, would gladly be forthcoming?

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence: Civil Defence Week (22 May 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in the interests of publicity and recruiting for Civil Defence, he will consider with the authorities concerned the desirability of holding a Civil Defence Week throughout the country during the forthcoming summer.

Oral Answers to Questions — Civil Defence: Civil Defence Week (22 May 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: Will some effort be made to make these weeks the same in particular areas, with a view to a concentration of effort—allowing for a more ambitious programme by that concentration of effort—and also the economies which can come from joint efforts?

Clause 6. — (Approved School Orders.) (23 May 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: In view of the great co-operation, help and zeal which has been accorded to the consideration of this Bill by the hon. Members for Accrington (Mr. H. Hynd) and Leicester, North-West (Mr. Janner), it is with regret that I find myself having to oppose this Amendment. I shall endeavour briefly to give my reasons. The hon. Member for Accrington referred to the fact that there was a small number...

Clause 6. — (Approved School Orders.) (23 May 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: I understand the point of the hon. Member, but I want to make it clear to the House that these classifying schools have been in existence for a long time. The suggestion that these remand homes might be turned, as it were, into classifying schools would mean that their uses will be extended. There are 70 of these remand homes. The effect of the Amendment would be that each one would be...

Clause 6. — (Approved School Orders.) (23 May 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: The point I was endeavouring to make was that if it was intended to use these remand homes as classifying schools negotiations with the homes would be necessary to make certain that vacancies were available.

Clause 6. — (Approved School Orders.) (23 May 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: The point I was making was that where there was a special case of a remand home, such as I imagine is referred to by the hon. Gentleman, which was appropriate for the purpose, the matter could be met by making no classifying school available in that area. But it does not necessarily mean that every large remand home in the country would be suitable to the same degree.

Clause 6. — (Approved School Orders.) (23 May 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: I beg to move, "That the Bill be now read the Third time." In moving the Third Reading of the Bill, I should like to detain the House for a few minutes to pay certain tributes, and also to deal with one or two points in the Bill which have not been referred to this morning. I would be less than courteous if I did not express my earnest thanks to the Secretary of State for the Home...

Clause 6. — (Approved School Orders.) (23 May 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: I was hoping that my tributes might be regarded a little higher than that, although I understand the point made by the hon. Member for Leeds, West, about the question of juvenile delinquency. I hope, however, that he will not argue from the particular to the general. In dealing with various points of the Bill, may I make it clear that various matters which find their expression in the...

Clause 6. — (Approved School Orders.) (23 May 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: Is not the answer in the hon. Gentleman's own argument? Surely the whole point is that a classifying school is allocated to a particular court and the school has that expert knowledge which the hon. Gentleman wants to see.

Orders of the Day — Pensions (Increase) Bill (24 Jun 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: We should welcome the introduction of this Bill if only for the reason that it is five years since we have had a Bill dealing with this subject. It was high time that we had such a Measure to make up the leeway of the intervening years. I should like to touch upon one point about pensions which, to my knowledge, has not yet been referred to in this debate. There is envisaged in every salary...

Orders of the Day — Children and Young Persons (Amendment) Bill: Clause 5. — (Amendment of Section 64 of Principal Act.) (28 Jul 1952)

Mr Norman Cole: I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."
