Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 79. — (Appeal Against Scheme.) (13 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: If, by leave of the House, may speak again, I would say that I have done my best within the limits of physical requirements over the last three hours to be in this Chamber, and I heard most of the debate on the 10 Amendments. The last thing I wanted to do was to ask my hon. Friend a question out of the blue. This is a very minor point, and I do not think it was discussed, because much more...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 83. — (Effect of Cessation of Control Order.) (13 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I admit that it is a question of opinion which nobody can prove, but I still feel that the words added by an earlier Amendment will be more effective than will this Amendment. However, I rise to address my hon. Friend on another point. I raised a similar question in Committee. I may be far too simple in these matters, but if an issue is taken before a court one gets either confirmation or...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 83. — (Effect of Cessation of Control Order.) (13 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I am sure that the hon. Member would not wish to misinterpret my words or meaning. I said that the court should be deciding the rights or wrongs of making a control order, and I asked what would be the result of that decision.

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Schedule 3. — (Application of Part Ii of Act of 1961 as Amended to Scotland.) (13 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I do not know if there is a special Scottish mystique about this. I notice the peculiar mnemonic"(cc),"whereas we usually use the letters a, b, c, and so on. Is this a printing error, or something I do not understand?

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Schedule 5. — (Repeals.) (13 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I should like to add my mede of praise for this Bill, but first I should like to congratulate my right hon. Friend on all the work he has done, not only in public but behind the scenes. As I said to one of my hon. Friends this evening, this has been manifest throughout. My right hon. Friend has also stuck to his guns—a quality which we can all admire. He has been persuasive and eloquent,...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 4. — (Compulsory Purchase by Corporation of Land.) (9 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: We have listened with great sympathy and interest to the problems outlined by the hon. Member for Oldham, West (Mr. Hale) and which may to some extent be familiar to some hon. Members. May I say, with respect, to the hon. Gentleman that I do not think the Amendment which we are discussing is applicable to the conditions which he has been describing. My hon. Friend the Member for Crosby (Mr....

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 4. — (Compulsory Purchase by Corporation of Land.) (9 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: If the hon. Gentleman thinks that, all I can say is that he and those who agree with him must think that everything which we tried to say in the 1959 Act about market value, or future market value if local authorities change their minds about the use of an acquired site, was nugatory and a waste of time. I do not think so. I think that the 1959 Act brought a great measure of justice and...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 4. — (Compulsory Purchase by Corporation of Land.) (9 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: This is an important matter. I pay due tribute to my hon. Friend's two or three private efforts to introduce a Bill to the House, which eventually became a Government Bill. That is very clearly in my memory. My hon. Friend did all he could to do away with the two-tier effect in land. Does he realise this? I do not want an answer off the cuff, because it may be a little bit of a legal...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 6. — (Disposal of Land Not Required by Housing Societies.) (9 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: The Amendment is quite innocuous. It says nothing more than the Housing Corporation can already do without instruction. It can already consult anybody it likes. This is its function as a public body, but I am concerned with what the Amendment might mean under the surface. We are all concerned about land being, as it were, shuffled between two public authorities, one the local authority and...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 13. — (Declaration of Improvement Area.) (9 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: On this occasion, I strongly support my right hon. Friend. Indeed, unless I completely misunderstand the position, which is quite possible, I think that my right hon. Friend did not state his case at its strongest. As I understand the Bill as it stands at present, it could be that an area of 1,000 houses could be declared an improvement area although 750 of the houses were not capable of any...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 13. — (Declaration of Improvement Area.) (9 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: As an accountant, the hon. Member will realise that what he has just sad would be outside the Bill. Incidentally, the hon. Member said 20 out of 100; he meant 25 out of 100. Does not he realise the effect on the local authority of having three-quarters of the houses in the area not within the full standard and the temptation to do something with them and thereby dissipate resources?

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 3. — (Exception for Measures Against Loss Leaders.) (8 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I put my name to this Amendment a week or two ago and, having heard the debate, I have found no reason to change my views. It may be well to remember the purpose for which this Clause, including this Amendment, is designed. It is designed to provide an alibi to the manufacturer who withholds supplies. We have gone a little way from that in trying to look at the definition of the alibi. This...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 3. — (Exception for Measures Against Loss Leaders.) (8 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: If the right hon. Member had listened to me, as I am sure he usually does, he would have noticed that I said ½d. is a twenty-fourth of 1s., but that it did not contribute a real profit to the man concerned. In discussing this Amendment we should not get bogged down. Judges are not foolish; neither is the Court. It will know if a man is selling either regularly or on one occasion only at a...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 3. — (Exception for Measures Against Loss Leaders.) (8 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: That is a fair question and deserves a fair answer. If I were a manufacturer I should almost give those things away, so long as it did not damage my trade, or I would link them with a more up to date article. No manufacturer would like to have in the front of the shop out of date articles which merely show what is produced in the past. He would rather that they were absorbed and the retailer...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 3. — (Exception for Measures Against Loss Leaders.) (8 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: The right hon. Member for Battersea, North (Mr. Jay) did not return the courtesy which I extended to him, but I make no complaint about that. I must point out to the right hon. Gentleman and his hon. Friends that the word "seek" does not appear in the Amendment. The point of the Amendment may well be met even though a man is making a profit, provided also that he is doing it from the point...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 2. — (Prohibition of Other Measures for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (25 Mar 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I apologise for interrupting my hon. Friend, but he referred to "tightening up" the provisions of subsection (3). Surely, that is not what is wanted. What is wanted is a comprehensive net to catch any kind of new method of avoiding the abolition of resale price maintenance which might be thought of in the future. In other words, these two examples that are given in Clause 2 are surely a...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Resale Prices Bill (25 Mar 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: The hon. Member for Sheffield, Brightside (Mr. Winterbottom), and the hon. Member for Nelson and Colne (Mr. S. Silverman) propose to say a few words on the Question, That the Clause stand part of the Bill, and if I catch your eye in due time I shall do so as well. This Amendment is one more example of hon. Members being engaged on the herculean task of trying to make the Clause of practical...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Resale Prices Bill (25 Mar 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: May I ask my hon. Friend whether has C been a purchaser from A before?
