Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 8. — (Supplementary Provisions as to Registration, References and Applications.) (13 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: It is probably my fault, but I am not clear on one point. It seems to me that Clause 8(3) deals with two separate matters. I take it that the latter part as amended deals with the main proceedings before the Court. The earlier part, taking into account the first Amendment, deals with the right to appear before the Court in an appeal on a grouping or regrouping. However, this is not very...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 14. — (Short Title Commencement and Transitional Provisions.) (13 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I entirely understand my right hon. Friend's caution in this matter. As he said, this is uncharted ground, even though we have some sort of experience from the 1956 Act. As a layman, I am puzzled by the following. No illegality is created by the Bill when it becomes an Act until Clause 1 comes into force. Therefore, if there is no illegality in respect of which one claims exemption under...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Schedule. — (Transitional Provisions.) (13 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: At this late hour I intervene for only a few minutes. With most of what the hon. Member for Wednesbury (Mr. Stonehouse) said I cordially disagreed, but there was one thing he said which reminded us all that little enough has been said about it. He said that the retailer in his position in the community added some value, some benefit, to the article which he sold and which he obtained from...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Schedule. — (Transitional Provisions.) (13 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: It is, as my right hon. Friend says, another split in the party opposite, but we get so used to that on the other side of the House that we are almost unable to recognise them when they occur. The Bill was brought in, and has been deliberated on in this House, because it was felt that it was in the public interest to do so. There is still room for improvement in another place, but the public...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: New Clause. — (Application to Restrictive Practices Court in Consequence of Proceedings Under Restrictive Trade Practices Act 1955.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I am sure that hon. Members on both sides of the House are pushing at an open door in our discussion of these Amendments and the new Clause. What we need to know is what is on the other side of that door. I have carefully read the Clause and my right hon. Friend's Amendment No. 29 and I see several differences in them, at least one of which has not been mentioned. The new Clause deals inter...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: New Clause. — (Application to Restrictive Practices Court in Consequence of Proceedings Under Restrictive Trade Practices Act 1955.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: That reinforces the point which I was making. I was assuming the maximum reason for obliging the organisation to go through this inquiry twice. If it is only a matter of two or three years ago that an inquiry was held, then it becomes nonsense to make people go through it twice. It is like trying an ordinary civil case twice in two or three years. This we would not do. Quite apart from the...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: New Clause. — (Application to Restrictive Practices Court in Consequence of Proceedings Under Restrictive Trade Practices Act 1955.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: That is a way of explaining it and the hon. Gentleman may be right, but what I meant was that we could take from both to produce something which would be much better than either.

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: New Clause. — (Application to Restrictive Practices Court in Consequence of Proceedings Under Restrictive Trade Practices Act 1955.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I agree with much of what the hon. Gentleman says, but he will appreciate that the 1956 Act did not make resale price maintenance wrong. In fact, it allowed it to go on, so that in that respect what has happened in the Restrictive Practices Court does not apply.

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: New Clause. — (Application to Restrictive Practices Court in Consequence of Proceedings Under Restrictive Trade Practices Act 1955.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I am very much taken with this part of the right hon. Gentleman's argument, but the new Clause says that, if something approved by the Court under the 1956 Act was unworkable unless the maintenance of resale price maintenance were allowed, exemption should be given. It does not say that exemption will be automatically given just because the matter has been before the Court.

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: New Clause. — (Application to Restrictive Practices Court in Consequence of Proceedings Under Restrictive Trade Practices Act 1955.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I am sure that my hon. Friend realises that because of the existence of different criteria under the Bill we may well get what he calls a ridiculous situation in the same industry.

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: New Clause. — (Application to Restrictive Practices Court in Consequence of Proceedings Under Restrictive Trade Practices Act 1955.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I have listened to what my right hon. Friend has said with great respect, but is it really true? It comes under Clause 7(3). It means that automatically, at the end of two years, it must come up for review. Surely the whole thing then starts again. I am not talking about material changes, but about the application of the gateways under Clause 5.

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: New Clause. — (Application to Restrictive Practices Court in Consequence of Proceedings Under Restrictive Trade Practices Act 1955.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: If I understand the hon. and learned Gentleman opposite and my right hon. Friend, what we are talking about is the statement on the findings of fact, and I do not know that the Court would do that, particularly when the application of the appellant was ruled out as not being in the public interest.

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: New Clause. — (Application to Restrictive Practices Court in Consequence of Proceedings Under Restrictive Trade Practices Act 1955.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I said that not to grant exemption because of past approval by the Court was smacking of retrospection.

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 1. — (Avoidance of Conditions for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: The hon. Member meant "to the agent", not to the retailer.

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 1. — (Avoidance of Conditions for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I intervene briefly only because of some remarks made by the hon. and learned Member for Northampton (Mr. Paget) and the hon. Member for Manchester, Cheetham (Mr. H. Lever). The hon. Member for Cheetham does not want a Resale Prices Bill but a prices Bill. After listening to the hon. and learned Member for Northampton, I was not certain whether he would be in demand by those who want to find...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 1. — (Avoidance of Conditions for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I did not say that there was a relationship between the amounts of work involved. I agree with what the hon. and learned Gentleman said earlier, that the job of directors of companies was to push their businesses. I do not think that they will be deflected from doing it by trying to find ways round the Bill, because in many cases that will not produce anything like an adequate reward for the...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 1. — (Avoidance of Conditions for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I want a certain number of them to be stopped by the Bill, and I want a certain amount of resale price maintenance to go on. I have said that from the beginning. That is why I consider that the Bill has a certain job of work to do, and that is why some of us have done our best to ensure that it does that job of work. I did not say that we should not take notice of these loopholes. I said...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 2. — (Prohibition of Other Measures for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: Surely, the position is that these other grounds are such that would stand alone even if the paramount motive was not there at all.

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 2. — (Prohibition of Other Measures for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I may not have made myself quite clear. I believe that the court is intended to take notice of what the right hon. Gentleman calls the minor reasons assuming that the major reason of non-maintenance of prices never existed. In other words, one of these would be enough standing alone.

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 2. — (Prohibition of Other Measures for Maintaining Resale Prices.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I am sure the hon. Member realises that we are talking about other grounds in addition to the prohibited grounds in the earlier part of the Clause. Surely he is not taking these in isolation.
