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

Mr Norman Cole: What the hon. Member for Manchester, Cheetham (Mr. H. Lever) has said is not the whole story. Unless one blocks up the ways out, one cannot insist on the maintenance of the abolition of resale price maintenance. With regard to what my hon. Friend the Member for Stratford-on-Avon (Mr. Maude) said, I do not think that my hon. Friend the Minister of State can answer his question. It is a matter...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 5. — (Power of Court to Exempt Classes of Goods.) (12 May 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: This gateway may well prove to be the most important of all, and I am grateful to my right hon. Friend for including it. I support what my hon. Friend the Member for Twickenham (Mr. Gresham Cooke) said about services in this regard. He mentioned a number of trades in which after-sales services are sometimes all important and in which one might sacrifice a little on the capital cost in order...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 5. — (Power of Court to Exempt Classes of Goods.) (22 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I hope that my right hon. Friend will think about this Amendment, in its actual terms and what is sought to do by it. It has been said several times in this debate that the Title of the Bill is the restriction of the maintenance of minimum resale prices. Unlike the Socialist Private Member's Bill, which came forward in January, it does not include the word "abolition" in its Title. It merely...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 5. — (Power of Court to Exempt Classes of Goods.) (22 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I thought that I heard the hon. Member say that the Court was more determined in its work. If I have misunderstood him I am sorry. However that may be, we should be in a position to guide the Court on exactly what we have in mind. We are the body which must lay down the lines on which we wish the Bill to work. The Court will have no regard to what Parliament meant by these words. I wish to...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 5. — (Power of Court to Exempt Classes of Goods.) (22 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I will try to make it clear. Amendment No. 59 contains almost a copy of the gateway provided in the 1956 Restrictive Practices Act. I cannot believe that it is by mistake that that does not appear in the Bill. I should like my right hon. Friend to tell us whether that was a deliberate part of policy based on experience, or that it was felt that the Bill did not need a vehicle of that kind. I...

Orders of the Day — Resale Prices Bill: Clause 5. — (Power of Court to Exempt Classes of Goods.) (22 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I am sure that my right hon. Friend will address his mind to what would be the position if a certain trade or industry which got through the Court under the 1956 Act were turned down because of the Bill.

Oral Answers to Questions — Pensions and National Insurance: National Assistance (20 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance if, in order to make the benefits of National Assistance more attractive both to those who receive them and to others eligible to receive them, he will consider changing its description to National Welfare.

Oral Answers to Questions — Pensions and National Insurance: National Assistance (20 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I thank my right hon. Friend for that Answer, but is he aware that, above all things, the work of the staff matters far more than the name? Would he give this further consideration, because, although Shakespeare had a few words to say about the value of names, the name is of great importance in regard to public services.

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (20 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I am sure that the hon. Member wishes to be fair to the great number of people who no longer pay taxation hut who paid it in 1951. Or does he think that that is not important?

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 69. — (General Effect of Control Order.) (13 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I can find nothing in Clause 68 or anywhere else which prohibits a local authority from making a new order on the expiry of the five years. One of the circumstances for the imposition of a control order is that it is necessary to protect the safety, welfare or health of persons within the house; if they were sufficiently deleterious, the circumstances would justify the making of an order.

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 69. — (General Effect of Control Order.) (13 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I was present for much of that debate. The hon. Gentleman has rushed in, with the best intentions, where angels fear to tread, because living conditions are not only physical. Any judge in the High Court or in a county court could rule that psychological conditions, about which the hon. Gentleman expatiated so well, were part of the safety, welfare or health of the person in the house. I am...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 69. — (General Effect of Control Order.) (13 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: The hon. Gentleman rescued himself just in time, because the house does not have to have a 1961 order to justify this procedure. I agree that after five years of local authority management it ought not to be in that condition. No doubt this will have to be decided in the courts in due course, but I am certain which way the decision will go. The Government Amendment removes any possibility...

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 69. — (General Effect of Control Order.) (13 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: Of course, we all hope that the local authorities could put the property into a proper state in under five years, but, if it were not amenable to treatment in that time what would my hon. Friend do?

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 74. — (Scheme Listing Works Involving Capital Expenditure.) (13 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: What would happen in the event of there being a surplus?

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 74. — (Scheme Listing Works Involving Capital Expenditure.) (13 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: If there were a surplus on the capital side and it was transferred to the capital account, then in that case the dispossessed proprietor would not lose?

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 74. — (Scheme Listing Works Involving Capital Expenditure.) (13 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: The hon. Member has said that there is no question of there being any surplus on the revenue side or that, therefore, it would be transferred to the capital account in regard to a scheme. I agree, by definition, that that is so, but what is the purpose of transferring it to the other side of the account?

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 74. — (Scheme Listing Works Involving Capital Expenditure.) (13 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: Since the hon. Member has referred to penalties, I might make it clear that in referring to the local authority and surpluses I merely wanted to mention the question of surpluses so that the matter could be cleared up and not left hanging in mid-air, as it were.

Orders of the Day — Housing Bill: Clause 78. — (Appeal Against Control Order.) (13 Apr 1964)

Mr Norman Cole: I do not disagree with the intention of the Amendment, but I am not sure that the position is exactly as my hon. Friend has described. As amended in Committee, Clause 78 states: Within fourteen weeks from the date on which a control order comes into force"— which, I presume, is simultaneous more or less with the service of it on the interested parties, to which my hon. Friend the...

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

Mr Norman Cole: As I read the Bill as it will be amended by this and the following Amendment, it will state in subsection (1, c) of Clause 79 that the number of individuals or households as specified by the local authority in the scheme is unreasonably low". I know exactly what the Government are trying to do, but I wonder whether they have done it. The "limit fixed by the scheme" in the original paragraph...

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

Mr Norman Cole: I should like to raise a point of information. It is obviously a matter of commonsense that under the Bill as amended by the Standing Committee the court can confirm or not confirm a scheme. After all, that is what the court is there for, but what I do not understand is what now happens to the court's power to vary a scheme I can assure my hon. Friend that I have looked at the subsection and...
