Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Advertisements (Hire Purchase) Act, 1957 (4 Jun 1959)

Miss Elaine Burton: Is the President of the Board of Trade aware that, more than anybody, the Parliamentary Secretary is unaware of the provisions of the Act? Does he know that, on 14th May last, the Parliamentary Secretary, replying to me, said that this Act did not require the cash price or the amount of each instalment to be stated? As I have a copy of the Act here and it seems to state the contrary, will the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Advertisements (Hire Purchase) Act, 1957 (4 Jun 1959)

Miss Elaine Burton: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. In justice to the Editor of HANSARD, would it be in order for me to ask, through you, that the Minister should note that the statements are as I gave them, as they appear in column 1414 of the OFFICIAL REPORT, and the Parliamentary Secretary did make a very great mis-statement, accusing me, in turn, of having made it myself?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Advertisements (Hire-Purchase) Act (14 May 1959)

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Advertisements (Hire-Purchase) Act (14 May 1959)

Miss Elaine Burton: Is the Parliamentary Secretary aware that his answer is unsatisfactory and is complete nonsense.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Physical Education (7 May 1959)

Miss Elaine Burton: asked the Minister of Education (1) whether he is aware that, while a slight increase is planned in the number of women students to be trained in physical education at general colleges, no such corresponding increase is envisaged at the specialists colleges of physical education; that, until further expansion is planned, it will be impossible to provide an adequate number of teachers to work...

Oral Answers to Questions — Education: Physical Education (7 May 1959)

Miss Elaine Burton: Arising out of both those Questions, is the Parliamentary Secretary aware that the Physical Education Association of Great Britain and Northern Ireland is concerned at this and welcomes the wings of the general colleges coming into place in 1960, but not as replacement of the specialist colleges? Is the Parliamentary Secretary further aware that there is not a shortage of candidates, but that...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Hire Purchase (Advertisements) (7 May 1959)

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Government Contracts (30 Apr 1959)

Miss Elaine Burton: I had hoped that this Question might have been answered by the Prime Minister to whom it was originally addressed. May I ask the hon. and learned Gentleman to note that the word in the Question is "employment" and not "unemployment"? Is he aware that shop stewards and, I believe, progressive employers in Coventry are very disturbed about the way in which, because of a contraction in...

Orders of the Day — Youth Employment Problems (30 Apr 1959)

Miss Elaine Burton: I am glad to follow in the debate the hon. Member for Tonbridge (Mr. Hornby), because he has referred to the Youth Employment Service. I was Chairman of the Select Committee on Estimates which reported recently on this Service. We spent almost a year seeing people who are very knowledgeable on the subject, including youth employment officers and representatives of the Ministry of Labour and...

Orders of the Day — Youth Employment Problems (30 Apr 1959)

Miss Elaine Burton: I am sure that would be much better. As we all know, the Select Committee on Estimates cannot recommend increases in expenditure. It can only recommend decreases. Therefore, we on that Committee compromised by doing neither, because we certainly felt that increases were necessary. There is another point on which I should be glad to have the comments of the Parliamentary Secretary to the...

Orders of the Day — Youth Employment Problems (30 Apr 1959)

Miss Elaine Burton: I think I said that I was not holding any brief for this particular diploma, but I would ask the Parliamentary Secretary not to be so anxious that indeed we get nowhere. There is always that danger. The youth employment officers felt not only that they were getting nowhere but that they were going back, and perhaps the Parliamentary Secretary could give us some help as to what recognised...
