Miss Elaine Burton: Is the Parliamentary Secretary aware that for once I am delighted with the reply which he has given? Could he see that it is given a certain amount of publicity? Is it within the province of the Board of Trade to let the Press have a copy of the advertisement which I sent to him, because certain "wide boys" in the advertising profession have been trying to get away with it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Hire Purchase (Advertisements) (16 Jun 1959)

Miss Elaine Burton: This is most extraordinary. Does the Parliamentary Secretary recall that last week my right hon. Friend the Member for Battersea, North (Mr. Jay) asked whether the Board of Trade was now accepting a plea of ignorance as a defence for wrongdoing? Why is the Board of Trade never prepared to help the shopper? Since the President of the Board of Trade told me last week that he had not yet decided...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Fruit, Vegetable and Salad Prices (15 Jun 1959)

Miss Elaine Burton: It would have been simpler if the hon. Gentleman had said "No, Sir" to the three Questions. Is he aware that an answer like that will lose the Conservative Party any vote at any women's conference of any party anywhere?

Miss Elaine Burton: asked the Minister of Labour (1) in view of the fact that the present number of disabled people employed at the Remploy factory, Coventry, is 59 in comparison with an average of 71 over the last five years, why there is to be a delay in the admission of eight further people considered suitable by his officers; (2) if he will make a statement upon the efforts being made by Remploy to secure...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Remploy (8 Jun 1959)

Miss Elaine Burton: Whilst believing that the Minister wants to help, we never seem to get any further on this matter. Has the right hon. Gentleman looked at the actual financial position? Would he, for example, with regard to these eight people considered suitable for Coventry, look into what it costs in allowances for them not to be employed by Remploy as compared with the actual wages they would receive at...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Remploy (8 Jun 1959)

Miss Elaine Burton: Is the Minister aware that this factory in Coventry had packaging facilities installed in it at the request of the Ministry? These facilities are not being used.

Is he aware that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Salad Prices (8 Jun 1959)
