Oral Answers to Questions — Uganda: Sport (Financial Assistance) (20 Nov 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: As the right hon. Gentleman will know, the first part of his Answer is exactly the same as the one he gave me last week. [HON.

Gentleman whether he is aware that a great many countries, including the Scandinavian countries, do give help for the development of sport, and that there is strong feeling in this country that...

Bill Presented: Industrial Disputes Order, 1958 (19 Nov 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: I was particularly anxious to speak in this debate because of the widespread opposition to the Government's proposal which exists in Coventry, not only in the trade unions but among people whose political opinions differ from my own, and among employers as well as employees. I would say to the hon. Member for Totnes (Mr. Mawby) that the people with whom I have spoken are not worried so much...

Bill Presented: Industrial Disputes Order, 1958 (19 Nov 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: And, as my hon. Friend says, they have not discussed it. The Parliamentary Secretary is present, and I understand that he is to reply. He has recently paid a visit to the Midlands, although I do not think he got as far as Coventry. I do not know whether the opinions which he heard expressed in the Midlands are the same as those which have been expressed to me. But I wish to put to him a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Weights and Measures Regulations (13 Nov 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: The Parliamentary Secretary might have referred to 12th June last, when I had just the same Answer. Does the hon.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: European Games (13 Nov 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: The Prime Minister seems to be singularly uninformed. Is he aware that the generosity and public spirit shown by the News of the World have now put a better face on this matter and is the reason for this Question being on the Order Paper today? Might I further ask the Prime Minister if he realises that these Games have never been held in Britain but have been held in Italy, France, Norway,...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: European Games (13 Nov 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: As the staff of the Prime Minister has so misinformed him, and as I would hate him to go in error, may I ask him if he is aware that it is not yet, unfortunately, a case of these Games being held here but merely that it is possible now to make application for them, and that the News of the World has made that possible?

Is he aware that in the street where I live, motor cars are parked morning, noon and night and also at the weekend, and that the position is becoming quite intolerable? Will the Minister...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Fruit and Vegetables (Prices) (10 Nov 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: Is the Minister aware that the ordinary shopper certainly does not agree with that, never mind what the hon. Member for Kidderminster (Mr. Nabarro) thinks? May I ask the Minister whether he does not realise that when the price of fruit or vegetables tumbles sharply the reduction is not passed on to the housewife, and why is the Tory Government so tender with the distributive interests?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Retail Markets (10 Nov 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food whether he is aware of the improvements offered to traders and public alike by the new retail market in Coventry, and that the facilities for selling fish, fruit and vegetables are unequalled in any other city; and if he will recommend the construction of markets with similar facilities in all big cities in an effort both to avoid...
