Orders of the Day — Housing, Blyth (31 Jan 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: Blyth is a town of shipyard workers, railwaymen, miners, dock workers, shop and office workers, and others which follow similar callings.

Had it been peopled by financiers and speculators, had it numbered take-over bid merchants among its...

Oral Answers to Questions — Information Services (Ministerial Responsibility) (13 Feb 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Prime Minister aware that in some quarters this is regarded as the opening shot in the next General Election campaign? In the midst of an economic crisis, is it not deplorable that a Minister should be taken from an important Department in order to prop up the fortunes of a tottering Government? Is he also aware that this shows a lamentable lack of faith in the ability of Colman,...

Oral Answers to Questions — Shipping: Shipyards (Orders) (14 Feb 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: Does not the Minister realise that this reply will be a little disappointing to many smaller yards which have equipped themselves to meet modern conditions?

Orders of the Day — Shipping and Shipbuilding (15 Feb 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: I am merely quoting what has already been said, and no doubt the Minister will be able to reply to this point. I repeat what I said. In the course of his contribution, my hon. Friend the Member for Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Central mentioned the question of the Cunarder. I do not want to enter into a dispute—

Orders of the Day — Shipping and Shipbuilding (15 Feb 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: I have no time to give way. The only point I want to make in relation to the Cunarder is that I share the pride of the North East in the fact that its yards managed to wrest from my native Scotland, the traditional home of the Cunarder, the right to build this liner. I hope that the Government will look at the position again, and that, if a decision is taken to build it, the value of that...

Orders of the Day — Shipping and Shipbuilding (15 Feb 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: I am prepared to accept the Minister's statement because he has listened to the point which I have just made, but his quarrel is not with me but with those who have made this point.

Orders of the Day — Shipping and Shipbuilding (15 Feb 1962)

Gentleman aware that his succession to the Presidency of the Board of Trade considerably raised the hopes of my constituents that something would be done for the north-east of England?
