Orders of the Day — Finance Bill (2 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I have a serious point to make on which I should like information. I hope that the answer will be in the affirmative—it may be—but for the avoidance of doubt I should like the Minister of State when he replies to tell me. On page 14, the Schedule refers to raw hides and skins. There seems to be some doubt about the matter. I am speaking on behalf of a firm in my constituency whose export...

Orders of the Day — Business of the House (Finance Bill) (2 Dec 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I wonder whether you can give the House some guidance, Mr. Deputy-Speaker. It is now ten minutes past four o'clock. The Report stage and Third Reading of the Finance Bill are due to be taken together late on Monday. Can you give the House any guidance as to the printing of the Bill, as amended. Some hon. Members would like to see it in the meantime.

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 1. — (Charge of Income Tax for 1965–66.) (30 Nov 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: Would the right hon. Gentleman refer to col. 1037 of HANSARD of 11th November? He will find that he said that in increasing the standard rate of tax he did not propose to make a corresponding increase in the reduced rates of tax charged on the first £300 of taxable income. Will he next refer to subsection (2) of the Clause, where he will find that there are corresponding increases. Will he...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 1. — (Charge of Income Tax for 1965–66.) (30 Nov 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: That is most comforting to me but, considering the position a few months ahead—the position that will arise after April of next year—can the right hon. Gentleman say whether there was any kind of Parliamentary sanction behind what he was good enough to tell the House of Commons on 11th November?

Protection from Eviction Bill (26 Nov 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I want to refer to two points, one of which has just been partly dealt with by my hon. Friend the Member for Folkestone and Hythe (Mr. Costain). I am in general sympathy with the objects of the Bill but—I hope that I am wrong—I prophesy that the Government are laying up a lot of trouble for themselves because of their ubiquitous use of the word "premises". It occurs so often in Clause 1...

Protection from Eviction Bill (26 Nov 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I do not think that that will affect the position very much, because much more is brought into the ambit of the matter by this Bill than has been the case in the past. I also have some sympathy with the Amendment, but I suggest that it entirely misses the object that it is designed to achieve. My right hon. Friend the Member for Folkestone and Hythe put his finger on the nub of the matter....

Protection from Eviction Bill (26 Nov 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: First, with regard to the upper limit of the properties which are brought into the Bill, the right hon. Gentleman said that he was seeking to preserve the existing state of the law. But he is not doing so. Why has he to accept the ceiling of the county court procedure? There is nothing magic or sacred about it, and it was not adopted in the past for the purposes of a temporary Bill of this...

Protection from Eviction Bill (26 Nov 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I can assure the right hon. Gentleman that, as an ordinary sensible Member of the Committee, that is what I understood him to say and that that is what the average person in the country will understand him to have said. It is the very negation of proper legislation to put something into a Bill now and give notice that a later Bill will alter the position.

Clause 2. — (Suspension of Execution of Order for Possession.) (26 Nov 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: It has been emphasised that this is a temporary Measure, but, with respect to the Parliamentary Secretary's advisers, it seems to me that the Government are de facto giving what amounts to an extension of the control system. As long as a house is up to the rateable value limit, it will be controlled under the Bill up to a period of 12 months, and then this Measure will be supervened by a new...

Clause 2. — (Suspension of Execution of Order for Possession.) (26 Nov 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I do not think that that reply covers everything. This Bill, which is being brought in as an emergency Measure, is redolent all through of the question of suspending orders for possession. Any magistrate will take note of that. The title of the Bill will be an indication to him. The Parliamentary Secretary seemed to think that judges take notice of the proceedings in the House of Commons. It...

Clause 2. — (Suspension of Execution of Order for Possession.) (26 Nov 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: —they are not supposed to—surely it is not asking too much—though I agree with the Parliamentary Secretary about not proliferating these things—for something to be added by the Government dealing with hardship to the landlord or some other party who may be taking possession. The term "greater hardship" is far too comprehensive to be capable of interpretation by a judge. In other...

Clause 2. — (Suspension of Execution of Order for Possession.) (26 Nov 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I should like to know what will be the position in regard to a court order for possession that is made some time in the next few weeks, when the period does not expire before the Bill is enacted. Under subsection (3), is it open to the court then to suspend, as I hope that it is, the period of possession up to the maximum of 12 months from either the latter date when the matter comes before...

Clause 2. — (Suspension of Execution of Order for Possession.) (26 Nov 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: Would the Minister care to say whether his remark about the High Court also applies to an area county court decision yet to be given? That was the point I raised.

Clause 3. — (Restrictions on Operation of Foregoing Sections.) (26 Nov 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I am surprised that the Government are losing their touch—such as it was. I wonder that they did not reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Crosby (Mr. Graham Page) that this is one more matter which has to be put under the umbrella of Clause 2(4,d) dealing with hardship. I make the Government a present of that point in case they did not think of it. I wonder whether the Parliamentary...

Clause 3. — (Restrictions on Operation of Foregoing Sections.) (26 Nov 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: Can the hon. Gentleman visualise a case in which a person is intending to go into the premises and all has been settled? The premises are the subject of a contract which has been engrossed and is waiting for completion and then he finds that through family difficulty he has to decide that the problem should be transferred to the owner. They go to the court and there is no question of violence...

New Clause. — (Control of Mortgages.) (26 Nov 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: It seems to me that, both in this matter and in others, the Bill has no kind of relation to any previous rent Act. Every time we try to bring forward, as my hon. Friend the Member for Crosby (Mr. Graham Page) has done on this occasion, something which has been sacrosanct in previous legislation, we are told that it is not applicable under the Bill. Although I am on the side of the Government...

Orders of the Day — Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address [Sixth Day] (10 Nov 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: Is it the fact—if it is not, will the right hon. Gentleman arrange that it be done—that the inquiry will take into consideration the possible benefit of changing the name "National Assistance", as I suggested in the House some months ago?

Vestures of Ministers Measure (30 Jul 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I add my voice to those who have deplored the fact that we in this House, in 1964, are asked to decide upon events and affairs which are more properly within the governance of the Church itself. It is certainly not that I regard what we are discussing as trivial but nevertheless I am most concerned that we should be called upon to make this decision one way or the other. On the other hand,...

Orders of the Day — Police Pensions (27 Jul 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I very sincerely thank my right hon. Friend for honouring his word and bringing these Regulations forward, and doing it so expeditiously. I am sure that it is a job well done, and I am sure that the House and the police will be grateful to him. I think that the unanimous feeling expressed by the House this month underlines the respect that we have for our great police force and shows that we...
