Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Health: Doctors (Emigration) (23 Jul 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Minister aware that the events in Saskatchewan, in particular, are being followed with close interest in this country, and will he give the Canadian Government all the encouragement he can by demonstrating to them that had the United Kingdom Government at the time of the introduction of the Health Service yielded to the same kind of pressure we might have been without a Health Service here?

Orders of the Day — North-East Coast (Redundancy and Unemployment) (23 Jul 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: One common thread has drawn together hon. Members who have participated in this debate. That thread has been the praise rightly lavished on the people who live and work in the north-east of England. There has been a suggestion that the area ought to be called the "Three Rivers Area", but I think there is something about the term "North-East" that has a great deal of pride in the past and a...

Orders of the Day — North-East Coast (Redundancy and Unemployment) (23 Jul 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: Of all people to be given the credit for this, the most incongruous of the lot was the late Stanley Baldwin.

Orders of the Day — North-East Coast (Redundancy and Unemployment) (23 Jul 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: We are now asked to deal with history. If it is an assessment of the manner in which Stanley Baldwin dealt with the industrial and the economic problems of Britain, I recommend the hon. Lady the Member for Tyne-mouth (Dame Irene Ward) to go no further than to read the writings of the right hon. Member for Woodford (Sir W. Churchill). When it comes to dealing with Baldwin and with history,...

Orders of the Day — North-East Coast (Redundancy and Unemployment) (23 Jul 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: The choice is limited when I have mentioned only the two persons concerned. Two figures serve as an indictment of the Government's policy. The very fact that this debate has to take place at the end of the Session in 1962 is in itself an indictment of the Government, who have been in power since 1951. It is no use hon. Members opposite getting up and reciting remedies for problems that exist...

Orders of the Day — North-East Coast (Redundancy and Unemployment) (23 Jul 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: I know that hon. Members opposite are tired at this stage and cannot get on their feet, but that is no reason to interrupt hon. Members in this fashion.

Orders of the Day — North-East Coast (Redundancy and Unemployment) (23 Jul 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: The hon. Lady has been long enough in this House to know that she should get on her feet when asking questions. The real trouble with the Government Front Bench is that they are completely unfitted to lead a great industrial nation in the second half of the twentieth century. They have been losing their grip and impetus since 1955. We watched the great post-war developments; now there is a...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Blyth (26 Jul 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: asked the President of the Board of Trade what is now the policy of Her Majesty's Government in regard to industrial expansion and the provision of employment in those areas, such as the Blyth constituency, where there is a shortage of work.

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Commerce: Blyth (26 Jul 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware of the pleasure being expressed in the North-East at the announcement of the intention to build an advance factory in Durham and one in Northumberland and that our people are still watching his Department with very keen interest and hope to have some signs of progress before the House returns in October?

Queen's Speech (30 Oct 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: At this time last week many of us must have doubted whether this debate would take place. I agree with my hon. Friend the Member for Deptford (Sir L. Plummer) that it is deplorable that the interest shown in the start of a new Parliamentary Session is reflected in the attendance of hon. Members, particularly those on the Front Bench opposite. The right hon. Member for Woodford (Sir W....

Orders of the Day — Weights and Measures Bill (12 Nov 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: I was interested in the comments of the hon. Member for Cleveland (Mr. Proudfoot) and I am sure that his expert knowledge will be made available to the Standing Committee which considers this Bill. I was interested in what he said about the air conditioning of this Chamber. I have been a Member of this House for only a short time but not until tonight did I discover why Members in this...

Orders of the Day — Offices, Shops and Railway Premises Bill (15 Nov 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: I am grateful to the Minister for giving way because I would like him to clarify this distinction between Clauses 36 and 37. Is it not a fact that in Clause 36 power is given to the Minister to grant exemptions while, in Clause 37, the question is the power of the enforcing authority to grant an exemption? Is that not the distinction between the two Clauses?

Orders of the Day — Offices, Shops and Railway Premises Bill (15 Nov 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: One or two Members opposite have expressed some concern about the fate of the small shopkeeper under the Bill. They were a little unfair to the right hon. Gentleman the Minister of Labour, because they ought to have directed their questions to the President of the Board of Trade. The small shopkeeper is not in any danger from the Bill, except that he has to see that his premises are adequate...

Orders of the Day — Offices, Shops and Railway Premises Bill (15 Nov 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: I am grateful to the right hon. Gentleman for that clarification, although we could have given him one or two items of legislation which we would have willingly have put aside to make way for the implementation of the Gowers Report. It is true that this legislation has a long history. Between 1923 and 1936, no fewer than eleven Bills on this subject were brought to the House. Finally, we had...

Orders of the Day — Offices, Shops and Railway Premises Bill (15 Nov 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: The Prime Minister.

British Transport Commission (29 Nov 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: Is not the hon. Member aware that these pet lines, about which he speaks so lightly, provide the livelihood of the men in some of these towns, and provide the only means of attracting industry into the area? To some of us these pet lines are vital lines.

Advance Factory, Cramlington (12 Dec 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: The village of Cramlington in the county of Northumberland lies near the A.1 road. The villagers can hear the thunder of expresses on the main East Coast line between London and Scotland. It lies within easy reach of the Port of Blyth, and thus has easy access to Europe and all parts of the world on its eastern doorstep. Set in the midst of a shrinking coal field, it has made a major...

Advance Factory, Cramlington (12 Dec 1962)

Mr Edward Milne: The hon. Gentleman will not ignore the fact that many people have had to leave the area because no other employment was available.

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment (24 Jan 1963)

Mr Edward Milne: asked the Prime Minister what action is now being taken, by the Departments concerned, to treat as a matter of urgency the continuing unemployment in the north-east of England.

Oral Answers to Questions — Unemployment (24 Jan 1963)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Prime Minister aware that the appointment to which he refers is really an admission of failure on the part of the Government to cope with this problem? Will he ensure that the Ministers responsible for bringing about this state of affairs are replaced at short notice by others?
