Orders of the Day — Weights and Measures Bill: Clause 25. — (Pleading of Warranty as Defence.) (13 Mar 1963)

Mr Edward Milne: I support what my hon. Friend the Member for Dunbartonshire, East (Mr. Bence) has said, for in a Bill which contains a number of improvements and has many admirable features the Parliamentary Secretary has not seen fit to deal efficiently with this controversial Clause 33 (3). This subsection violates an important principle of consumer protection, namely, the disclosure of the weight of...

Orders of the Day — Weights and Measures Bill: Clause 48. — (General Powers of Inspection and Entry.) (13 Mar 1963)

Mr Edward Milne: I listened to the Parliamentary Secretary for Science with considerable interest. His arguments against the Amendment could be used as arguments against the whole Clause. The Title of the Clause is General powers of inspection and entry". If, to carry out the functions of the Bill, it is necessary to have powers of inspection and entry, obviously these powers should extend to the various...

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that even the contents of his Budget statement are inadequate to deal with the problem of unemployment in the North-East, and that it is about two and a half years since he promised us that the solution to the problem was in sight? Unemployment figures have mounted since then. What does the right hon. Gentleman propose to do about unemployment in addition to...

North-East (9 Apr 1963)

Mr Edward Milne: While I welcome the announcements about the siting of advance factories in my constituency and other parts of the North-East, may I ask whether the Prime Minister is aware that this is merely tinkering with the problem and that we are still awaiting the advance factory which we were promised more than a year ago and that the two advance factories in my constituency, when provided towards the...

Orders of the Day — Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (9 Apr 1963)

Mr Edward Milne: I have no wish to comment on the fratricidal address which the hon. Member for Kidderminster (Sir G. Nabarro) has just delivered to the benches opposite or to comment on his savaging of his right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer during his remarks. The type of speech to which we have just listened indicates that the rumour that the hon. Member was being called to the Conservative...

Oral Answers to Questions — North-East: Departmental Correspondence (13 May 1963)

Mr Edward Milne: I am rather surprised. Is not the Parliamentary Secretary aware that I wrote to his noble Friend on 26th March about a proposed interview with the Northumberland miners and that, although I have subsequently written again, I have received no reply? Does he not agree that the correspondence with his Department reveals that there is an unnecessary duplication of correspondence which, in many...

Orders of the Day — Clause 7, — (Tobacco Dealers.) (14 May 1963)

Mr Edward Milne: This debate has an air of unreality, because many of the things which a large number of hon. Members say will be possible after this change are already possible with the licence fee in operation. I declare an interest in this matter. I am one of the few hon. Members who has never smoked but who has sold a considerable amount of cigarettes in my lifetime in the distributive trade. I am...

Orders of the Day — Clause 7, — (Tobacco Dealers.) (14 May 1963)

Mr Edward Milne: The point the hon. Member made was very valid in discussion of this Clause. If we want to prevent the theft of cigarettes we shall not do that under the Finance Bill but by legislation for the prevention of crime. If we want to prevent the sale of cigarettes to children, we must impose a penalty on the trader who sells those cigarettes. Whether he has bought a licence is beside the point. If...
