Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Overseas Allowances (26 Jun 1951)

Miss Elaine Burton: Although I feel it rather difficult to ask a supplementary in view of that answer, may I ask my right hon. Friend whether, as obviously the men in Korea will be eligible for things like marriage allowances in the same way as men serving anywhere else, there is any possibility that he would be able to consider the rigorous conditions of the men in Korea and whether some allowance might be...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Overseas Allowances (26 Jun 1951)

Miss Elaine Burton: As my right hon. Friend says, there has been considerable discussion, but it has been rather one-sided so far as the answers are concerned. Would he feel able to give an answer as to whether he would consider the suggestion that the men in Korea should be made eligible for some form of allowance in view of the conditions under which they are now serving?

Civil Service (Equal Pay) (20 Jun 1951)

Miss Elaine Burton: While realising to the full the grave economic problems of the Government, it is with very great regret that I heard the Chancellor's statement. I should like to ask him whether it is not entirely out of date and old-fashioned still to compare a married man with the single woman? Surely, the comparison should be between a single man and a single woman, and, on the other hand, persons with...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Local Overseas Allowance (Korea) (19 Jun 1951)

Miss Elaine Burton: asked the Secretary of State for War (1) if he will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT a copy of the Treasury questionnaire on the cost of living used to determine whether or not a local overseas allowance should be granted to His Majesty's forces overseas: (2) what are the specific items of expenditure on which decisions concerning the granting of local overseas allowances are based.

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Local Overseas Allowance (Korea) (19 Jun 1951)

Miss Elaine Burton: On a point of order. May I ask for information, Mr. Speaker? An hon. Member may have two Questions down and not agree that they are the same type of Question. Am I in order in asking whether I may protest against the suggestion of the Minister that both should be answered together?

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Local Overseas Allowance (Korea) (19 Jun 1951)

Miss Elaine Burton: My right hon. Friend has been good enough to give me a copy of this questionnaire. Might I ask him if, in addition to the facts he has already stated, it does not include practically every conceivable phase of living, except that obtaining in Korea, under items such as cinemas, restaurant prices, club membership and so on? Would my right hon. Friend not agree that there should be either a...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Local Overseas Allowance (Korea) (19 Jun 1951)

Miss Elaine Burton: I persisted in asking for a separate answer so that I might have your permission, Mr. Speaker, to ask a further supplementary question. Does the Secretary of State for War realise that in the N.A.A.F.I. lists which were published in HANSARD on 27th February at column 1912 there were 19 articles and that for those 19 articles the man in Korea paid 1s. 7d. less; in other words ld. less for each...

Miss Elaine Burton: asked the Secretary of State for War if he has considered the representations, a copy of which has been sent to him by the hon. Member for Coventry, South, from soldiers in Korea on the subject of his decision not to issue a local overseas allowance to troops in that theatre; and, in view of these representations and of the strong feeling aroused both in this country and Korea, if he will...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Troops, Korea (Personal Expenses) (5 Jun 1951)

Miss Elaine Burton: While assuring my right hon. Friend that both I and the men who have written to me from Korea realise that no one is more anxious than he that justice should be done in this matter—[Laughter.] I have obviously had more letters than Members opposite on this subject. Would not my right hon. Friend agree that the most important thing is that the men in Korea should themselves believe this...

Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: Clause 1. — (Hydrocarbon Oils, Petrol Substitutes and Power Methylated Spirits.) (5 Jun 1951)

Miss Elaine Burton: I was not looking sceptically at the right hon. Gentleman. I was merely surprised that he, when he had developed a very good case on his first two points, decided to go further. I thought that he was astute enough to realise, in developing his third argument, that it did not hold water at all because it introduced other considerations.

Theatres and Cinemas (Smoking) (4 Jun 1951)

Miss Elaine Burton: Before I came into the Chamber somebody said to me, "You won't half be unpopular, stopping smoking in cinemas." I should like to remove that illusion at once. In the first place, I have not power to stop smoking in cinemas; secondly, if I had I should not wish to use it. I want tonight to raise this matter for discussion in the House and in the country. That is one of the purposes for which...

Theatres and Cinemas (Smoking) (4 Jun 1951)

Miss Elaine Burton: I am sorry if I did not make that clear. I was endeavouring to make it clear that I was raising this as a matter of fire risk. The other question is entirely secondary, although perhaps if I do not digress unduly I might be permitted to use it as a means of illustration. I wish to direct my remarks throughout to the fire risk, for which I understand there is at law a certain amount of...

Oral Answers to Questions — British Army: Troops, Korea (29 May 1951)

Miss Elaine Burton: Is my hon. Friend aware that there is great disquiet among our troops in Korea and that it is caused because the N.A.A.F.I. charge Hong Kong prices and the men receive no allowance to meet the higher charges? If I send some correspondence relating to the matter, will my learned Friend look into it again?
