Oral Answers to Questions — Local Government: Storm Damage (Assistance) (6 Mar 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: I welcome that statement from the right hon. Gentleman, but will he keep a careful watch on the situation and undertake to give the assistance he considers giving as readily and as willingly as possible?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Development Districts (15 Mar 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: Will the right hon. Gentleman consider extending the areas of the development districts; that is to say, instead of using the present method, will he consider, for instance, regarding the whole of the south-east of Northumberland as a development district so that there is some inducement and greater attraction to industrialists who are moving in, who would certainly have greater scope in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Development Districts (15 Mar 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: While I appreciate that reply, the fact still remains that the method he is defending—we are not really complaining about it, but rather asking him to look at an alternative—is not providing the goods in the way we wanted? Some further examination is obviously needed. Will he make it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office: Postal Facilities, Blyth (20 Mar 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the hon. Lady aware that her reply will cause a great deal of dismay not only to the townspeople but to the head postmaster and his staff who are operating under extreme difficulties? Will the hon. Lady undertake to look into this matter more closely with a view to reversing her decision?

Oral Answers to Questions — Post Office: Postal Facilities, Blyth (20 Mar 1962)

Oral Answers to Questions — Government Information Services (27 Mar 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: I thank the Prime Minister for that reply. Does he still consider it wise to have taken a Minister from an important Department during an economic crisis in order to bolster up Government affairs? Further, in view of the point which we made about Colin Hurry being consulted when we put a previous Question to the Prime Minister, does the fact that the Government are now considering the use of...

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Nursing, Medical and Other Professional Staffs) (27 Mar 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: Would the hon. Member be prepared to put down a Motion attacking the pay pause, if he is really interested in the wage increases for nurses and the other people he has referred to?

Orders of the Day — National Health Service (Nursing, Medical and Other Professional Staffs) (27 Mar 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: By the close of a debate of this length many things have been repeated, but I am quite willing to add my tribute to the Minister of Health for the attention he has paid to pretty nearly all the contributions to this debate. I would have a much higher regard for him if I felt that he would pay close attention to the appeals which have been made. I hope I am wrong in supposing that he will not....

Business of the House (29 Mar 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: The Leader of the House will be aware that there was a long debate on nurses' salaries this week. It is to the credit of the Minister of Health that he sat through most of that debate. Will an opportunity be given during next week's business for us to have a statement on the Minister's attitude and outlook on nurses' salaries?

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (11 Apr 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: Much as I am tempted, I do not intend to follow the hon. Member for Cirencester and Tewkesbury (Mr. Ridley) in many of the points he made, but there is one which I think worthy of reference. That was his suggestion of attracting people from areas of over-employment to areas where there is a superabundance of jobs. I would have thought that in a party which is now gradually beginning to be...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (11 Apr 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: The hon. Member must often have listened to debates and should know that it has never been suggested by myself or my hon. Friends that the question of mobility of labour, if desired, should be so restricted, but availability of jobs is more important than mobility of labour. Although anyone is allowed to move from one part of Britain to another, everyone has the equal right to expect that...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (11 Apr 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: I did not realise, when I was making my observations on the habits of hon. Members during the debate, how deep was the resentment felt at the kind of action that I have mentioned. I am grateful to the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, who, if I may say so, sets an extremely good example in this matter. I also pay my compliments to the Minister of Health for the painstaking way in which he...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (11 Apr 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: I do not know whether Dr. Beeching adds that to his railway salary, or what is the particular set-up in relation to this, but how can one honestly admire the Chancellor for courage in the pay pause situation when one finds that this sort of rot has set in in the community? I should like to look at two of the proposals in the Budget which, I think, need to be closely examined by the...

Orders of the Day — Ways and Means: Budget Resolutions and Economic Situation (11 Apr 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: I apologise, Sir Norman. The right hon. Members who occupied the post of Chancellor of the Exchequer in the years I have mentioned can be referred to, I hope, within the rules of procedure of the House of Commons as the guilty men of a lost decade. They are now, as recent by-elections have shown, on their way out. Very soon the Front Bench opposite will be occupied by other Members with...

Oral Answers to Questions — North-East Region (12 Apr 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that a visit of the description requested would be extremely valuable to the people in the industries in the North-East because they feel that they are being neglected by the other Ministers? Visits during by-elections are no substitute for visits in order to get real information on what the problems of the North-East really are.

Sport and Recreation (Increased Expenditure) (8 May 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: Is not the Chancellor aware that the figures that he has quoted merely look good when compared with the position in the past? Is not this a niggardly way of dealing with a pressing social problem? This is not what the Chancellor outlined in his Budget speech. He then said that the £50 million tax that he would draw from sweets and ice cream was in some way to be diverted to seeing that the...
