Orders of the Day — Finance Bill: New Clause. — (Licences to Sell Tobacco from Vehicles.) (3 Jul 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: I should like to refer to two brief points and particularly to part of the Economic Secretary's argument concerning the speech of my hon. Friend the Member for Sheffield, Brightside (Mr. Winterbottom). The Economic Secretary remarked that my hon. Friend had suggested that the travelling shops needed, and should be allowed, to work for as many hours as they wished. My hon. Friend spoke also,...

Economic Situation (26 Jul 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: On this question of the location of industry and helping workers to move from one area to another, does not the hon. Gentleman consider that the Chancellor, by restricting private and council house building, will put a damper on the policy which he is advocating?

Orders of the Day — Power Industries (1 Aug 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: The Parpliamentary Secretary has indicted his desire to see the future of the industry safeguarded. Can he say whether his Department protested against the measures proposed by the Chancellor of the Exchequer last week? Surely he must have been aware that an increase in the Bank Rate and a curtailment of expenditure on nationalised industries would cripple such activities as he has mentioned....

Orders of the Day — Teachers (Salaries) (1 Aug 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: Will the right hon. Gentleman clear up a paint far me about the position which he has raised? He talks about deciding on the merits of Burnham negotiations the channels into which the increases should be diverted—that is, the grades of teachers which should have the increases—and then he talks about the Treasury deciding the sum. What will happen if there is a dispute between the Ministry...

Orders of the Day — Employment, North Lanarkshire and N.E. England (1 Aug 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: I join my hon. Friend the Member for Lanarkshire, North (Miss Herbison) in apologising to the staff of the House for keeping them to this extent. I had not intended to participate in the debate this morning. I stayed on to serve my apprenticeship, as it were, and to understand the democratic procedures of the House. When I saw the presence of the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade...

Orders of the Day — Employment, North Lanarkshire and N.E. England (1 Aug 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: May I apologise for not giving prior notice? As I said, I was serving my apprenticeship in the democratic procedure of the House, and it was only by waiting to see what would happen that I found that I could intervene. I intended no disrespect to the President of the Board of Trade or the Parliamentary Secretary in not giving notice. I intervened only for the reason I have explained.

Orders of the Day — Employment, North Lanarkshire and N.E. England (1 Aug 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: I should like to correct any misunderstanding that there may be on this matter. When the hon. Gentleman refers to a telephone call, it could be inferred that it came from me. It did not. It came from the Tory candidate in my area.

Queen's Speech: Debate on the Address (2 Nov 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: The hon. Member for Lancaster (Mr. Berkeley) will forgive me, I hope, if I do not follow him in his remarks in this very late stage in the debate on the Gracious Speech. I hope that his own Front Bench will pay some attention to his criticism of our voting at the United Nations on colonial matters and also his strictures on the Commonwealth Relations Office. The right hon. Member for...

Oral Answers to Questions — Railways: Catering Establishments (15 Nov 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that one of these experiments concerned a group of railway employees who took over a refreshment room which was not paying and made it pay by reducing prices? Would he take notice of the talent that resides in railway employees and when he makes appointments to the Transport Commission look to that source?

Orders of the Day — Decimal Currency (23 Nov 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. May I have your guidance? As a result of the action of the hon. Member for Taunton (Mr. du Cann), the House has been deprived of an Adjournment debate. As Parliamentary time is so important, is there some means by which the House can protect itself against further action of this kind?

Orders of the Day — Decimal Currency (23 Nov 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: I was not suggesting an abuse, but was merely dealing with the technicalities of the position that has arisen. If I suggested any abuse, I withdraw it.

Public Investment (28 Nov 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: Are not those figures a criticism of the private-enterprise firms which are receiving orders from the nationalised industries rather than a criticism of the buying system of the nationalised industries? In short, despite the orders the private-enterprise firms are getting, they are failing to use them to advantage in order to move into other fields.

Oral Answers to Questions — European Economic Community (29 Nov 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: asked the Lord Privy Seal if he will make a statement on the present position with regard to Britain's application to join the European Economic Community.

Oral Answers to Questions — European Economic Community (29 Nov 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: In making his further statement on the Common Market, will the Lord Privy Seal pay due regard to the fact that a number of firms have already set up in the area of the European Economic Community, and that other firms are considering moving in in the future? Will he consider the effect of this on the economy of this country, and also take note of the fact that many of these firms could be of...

Mr Edward Milne: Has the Leader of the House noted and considered the Motion, in the name of a considerable number of my hon. Friends on this side of the House, protesting against the action of the Minister of Labour in deferring the operation of the decision of the Laundry Wages Council until April next year?

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Wages Councils (Orders) (6 Dec 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: asked the Minister of Labour why he deferred till 2nd April, 1962 the operation of increases in female laundry workers' wage rates granted by the Laundry Wages Council; and, in view of the low wages being paid in this industry, if he will reconsider his decision.

Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Wages Councils (Orders) (6 Dec 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: Is not the Minister aware that the Laundry Wages Council decisions affect workers in a very lowly paid industry? Is he not further aware that it is an injustice to inflict a pay pause on any section of workers, but that it is particularly unjust to those whose wage rates are such as have been agreed by the Laundry Wages Council? Is it not most unfair that after agreement has been reached in...

Congo: Laundry Wages Council Order (11 Dec 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: I should like to add a few remarks about this Laundry Wages Council Order because, in reply to Questions put by my hon. Friend the Member for Ogmore (Mr. Padley) and myself last week, we were told of a few reasons why the Minister thought it was necessary for him to take the action that has taken. The right hon. Gentleman said that while the duty of the Wages Council was to come to a...
