Orders of the Day — House Purchase and Housing Bill (15 Dec 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: I hoped that the Minister would not, because I did not want my informants' names to be revealed.

Orders of the Day — House Purchase and Housing Bill (15 Dec 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for giving way. I intervene for only a moment. Would I be right in assuming that the three larger societies to which I referred—the Abbey National, the Halifax and the Woolwich Equitable —are members of the Association?

Questions to Ministers (9 Dec 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. May I ask for your help and guidance? My request arises out of Question No. 60 on the Order Paper today. I put this Question down four weeks ago to the Chancellor of the Exchequer and, as he did not wish to answer it, it was transferred to the Minister of Housing and Local Government, and was bottom but one in the list. I know that I cannot ask you, Sir,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Coventry (3 Dec 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that there is anxiety in Coventry concerning the duration of unemployment, both male and female, that the figure for the quarter ended in June was 244 men and 63 women out of work for more than six months, and that these had increased, respectively, to 332 and 86 in the quarter ended September; and what steps he proposes to take to deal with...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Coventry (3 Dec 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: Is the Parliamentary Secretary aware that the position is getting worse and that his officers are not meeting with any success? Does he realise that for the past two quarters, the figure has increased and there is every indication it will get still greater? Does not the hon. Gentleman feel that the Government should dissociate themselves from the statement made yesterday by the President of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Coventry (3 Dec 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: The hon. Gentleman is, I think, answering the next Question—we have not got there yet. I am dealing with the duration of unemployment and the figure has been greater, and not less.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Coventry (3 Dec 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that a number of young people in Coventry is unable to find work of any kind, that this number includes many who left school last July, and that the position is made worse by the increasing number of men and women also remaining unemployed; and, in view of the fact that many more children will be leaving school in December next, if he will make...

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Coventry (3 Dec 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: Does the Parliamentary Secretary realise what gravity underlines that statement of his? Is he aware, for example, that the long-term prospects for our school leavers in Coventry—I have this on very good authority—are worse than at any time since the war? Does he appreciate that the number of school leavers is 10 per cent. up on last year and that by 1962 it will be 50 per cent. up? Can...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Electrical Appliances (Kite Mark Scheme) (2 Dec 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the anxiety felt by the British Standards Institution at the slow progress made in its desired arrangements for marking electrical equipment as safe when this complies with certain standards; and, as the Institution receives a grant for this from the Government, what proposals he has to make for expediting such work.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Electrical Appliances (Kite Mark Scheme) (2 Dec 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: Does not the hon. Gentleman understand that this is not a question of directing the work of the B.S.I.? If he has read the last report of the advisory council, he will remember that it said that this scheme for electrical goods was in an advanced state of preparation in October, 1957. We are now in December, 1958. When does the hon. Gentleman think that we might be getting on with it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Tooth Paste (Advertisements) (2 Dec 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that there is still anxiety, both among the general public and the British Dental Association, about the claims made by some toothpaste manufacturers in their advertisements; and if he will consider taking action under the Merchandise Marks Acts.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Tooth Paste (Advertisements) (2 Dec 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: Since the Minister is a "new broom" at the Ministry, could he go a little further than others have gone in the past? Is he aware that I raised this matter about two years ago? Will he agree that it is flagrantly dishonest for any manufacturer of tooth paste to imply that it is not necessary to brush one's teeth often if his toothpaste is used, and should not something be done about this matter?

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Policy (27 Nov 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: asked the Prime Minister if he will make a statement giving further details of Government policy as outlined in the Queen's Speech on the efforts proposed to secure a just balance between the expanding demands of the modern State and the freedom and status of the individual.

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Policy (27 Nov 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: In the context of "a just balance" and the "status of the individual", would the Prime Minister look into the position whereby organisations are to use Government money for discrimination against more than one half of the population? Is he aware that the Building Societies Association has issued a statement that it does discriminate against women in the granting of mortgage loans, simply...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Building Societies (Loans to Women) (20 Nov 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware of growing concern at the continued discrimination between men and women on official financial questions; and if he will make a statement concerning Government policy on this matter.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Building Societies (Loans to Women) (20 Nov 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: Is the Financial Secretary aware that, if he had not transferred my Question to the Minister of Housing and Local Government last week, when it was bottom but one in the list, he would have been able to give a much better Answer? Is he aware that building societies will not lend as much money to women as to men when they apply for a mortgage, and that the question of security is dominated...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Building Societies (Loans to Women) (20 Nov 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: But I am not referring to pensions. I am dealing with building societies. I warn the Financial Secretary that we shall go on until we get some satisfaction here.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: National Savings (20 Nov 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what steps he has in mind for increasing National Savings in the immediate future.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: National Savings (20 Nov 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: Does the Minister know that the building societies recently called for an increase in national savings through them, and that they directed this appeal especially to women? In view of the fact that the Building Societies Association has said that it discriminates on sex grounds, does not he consider this downright impudence?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: National Savings (20 Nov 1958)

Miss Elaine Burton: In view of the unsatisfactory nature of the reply, I beg to give notice that I shall, if possible, take an early opportunity of raising the matter on the Adjournment.
