Oral Answers to Questions — Housing: Blyth (12 Dec 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: Is not the right hon. Gentleman aware that this is simply not good enough and that quack remedies are no longer a solution to the type of housing problem that the Blyth local authority is facing? Is he further aware that a statement was made some time ago that the housing problem existed only in the larger centres? Last year, in the Borough of Blyth, with over 1,300 people on the waiting...

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Minister aware that, in reply to a previous Question, he said that there were only two difficulties facing the Borough of Blythe in its housing programme? Is he further aware that in the borough, a £2,000 house which in 1955 needed £5,040 on loan charges over 60 years, now needs £8,520, an increase of £3,480 and that this represents an increase of the weekly equivalent of £1 2s....

Advertising (15 Dec 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: I beg to move, That this House, noting the increasing power of the advertising industry, its influence upon our national life and its effect on our economy, calls upon Her Majesty's Government to institute an independent inquiry to consider whether safeguards are necessary in the interests of the consumer public. I do not think I need, either in this House or in the country, stress the...

Advertising (15 Dec 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: For reasons of time—I was keeping my eye on the clock—I left out the name, but, of course, the managing director of Arthur Guinness, Son and Co. (Park Royal) Ltd. is Lord Boyd of Merton, better known to hon. Members as Mr. Alan Lennox-Boyd.

Advertising (15 Dec 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: Henry Sell, to whom I was referring—

Advertising (15 Dec 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: In view of the fact that the hon. Gentleman's remark was not addressed to me in the first instance, I do not see why I should give way at this stage. I may possibly do so a little later on. Henry Sell wrote in the late 1880s a Dictionary of World Press and Philosophy of Advertising, and his philosophy was revealed in the following story. A prominent gentleman had his umbrella lifted in...

Advertising (15 Dec 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: The question of proof lies on both sides. I am merely expressing an opinion about what is likely to happen. Reliable authorities have referred to the type of pressure that can be exercised. If it can be disproved, I shall be quite willing to listen.

Advertising (15 Dec 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: I am sorry that the hon. Member should have felt it necessary to use those words. As for proof, journalists have already given information and evidence to the Molony Committee. At this moment the Committee has in its possession masses of information, which it is compiling, and which will be produced to the appropriate authorities at the proper time. If the hon. Member cares to talk to any...

Advertising (15 Dec 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: No, I am sorry, but I have already given way to one hon. Member, and judging by the small number of Members present there will be ample opportunity for the hon. Member to make a speech later on. In 1960 we spent just under £77 million on television advertising. The August copy of the Grocer's Gazette mentioned that twenty of the largest advertisers spent £57 million on Press and television...

Advertising (15 Dec 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: I am sorry to interrupt the hon. Member, but he has mentioned the distributive trade and the question of the passage of goods over the counter, which is a very important point. This is not due not so much to the people working behind the counter, but to the fact that the distributive trades have got into the hands of the financiers and speculators, and the people selling the goods are very...

Advertising (15 Dec 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: My hon. Friend the Member for Coventry, North (Mr. Edelman), who has just left us, has had his car stolen. That is why he has gone out of the Chamber.

Advertising (15 Dec 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: When the hon. Gentleman talks about the rights of the common man, and attacks those rights, can he tell us how much of those rights remain, remembering that to stimulate the competitive society which he is so eloquently boosting one soap manufacture needs to sell the same product in four different capacities and in four different ways? How much chance has the common man at the moment of...

Advertising (15 Dec 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: It is unfortunate that an hon. Member should now bring up the type of argument that lowers the standard of debate. Up to now the debate has been remarkably good, both in its exchanges and its opinions. The question of the effect of Press advertising upon editorial opinion needs to be carefully watched. It is one which we consider might well be the subject of an inquiry. Dangers undoubtedly...

Personal Statements (19 Dec 1961)

Mr Edward Milne: Yes, Mr. Speaker. In view of the fact that personal statements of this description are likely to become more numerous in the months that lie ahead, can we save Parliamentary time by asking the Government to issue a White Paper on the matter?
