Mr Edward Milne: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if, arising from recent approaches from the Northumberland Fishing Association and other bodies, he will take the steps necessary to increase the six-mile fishing limit from Berwick to Coquet Island to 12 miles and thus keep in line with the rest of the east coast.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Northumberland Coast (Fishing Limit) (29 Feb 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Minister aware that his reply underlines the sell-out not only of the interests of the North Northumberland fishermen, but, indeed, of our Norwegian E.F.T.A. partners? If, in the agreement to which he referred in his reply, it is possible to keep the whole of the Northumberland coast on a 12-mile limit for conservation, why was it decided earlier by our negotiators to give away six...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Travel Trade (Arbitration Scheme) (28 Feb 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that we share his interest in this matter—indeed, it would be difficult not to do so—because we forwarded the idea of this scheme to the Association of British Travel Agents four years ago? Does he realise that it will be necessary to have talks with the travel trade about the exclusion clauses in its agreements with the holidaymaking public in order to make a...

Electricity Supplies (24 Feb 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Minister aware that, welcome though his proposals are, they reflect little or no credit on his Department, and that his efforts to introduce oil into coal-fired stations during the course of recovery from the dispute could have done much to jeopardise the speedy return to normal which we all want? Will he make a statement on this matter as early as possible?

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Social Service Departments (22 Feb 1972)

But there is still a need for a greater liaison between the Departments mentioned in the Question and the continuance of this will be of real benefit

Oral Answers to Questions — Tourism (22 Feb 1972)

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Postal Charges and Services (9 Feb 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: It is rather surprising that these two Questions should have been answered together. Is the Minister aware that printed publications are almost the only sector in which we have a price advantage over European countries? Would the Minister consider this and the agreeable effect it could have on the circulation of many excellent publications and journals?

Orders of the Day — Glaxo (Proposed Merger) (9 Feb 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: As with the subject matter of past Adjournment debates of mine, tonight's deals with a matter which, although it may have wide national and international repercussions, interests me because of its effect on my constituents and my constituency. The village of Cambois until four years ago had a proud mining history. Then the pit was closed and, in common with many others in South-East...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Commonwealth Sugar (8 Feb 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that that is only half an answer? What he has failed to show in it is that the price of Commonwealth sugar has risen by £7 per ton and can rise by a further £11 under the agreement, which was commended because his Government have decided to join the E.E.C. Will the Minister also take into account the fact that there is an increase in ex-refinery prices as...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Glaxo (Merger) (7 Feb 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Secretary of State aware that his indecision in regard to this matter has created great uncertainty in the pharmaceutical industry? Is it not a matter for concern to his Department that when there was a blatant takeover bid by Beecham's he refused to refer this matter to the Monopolies Commission? Does he not understand that people consider that he is more concerned about his City...

Transport Holding Company Bill: Pensions, and Compensation for Loss of Employment etc. (25 Jan 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: The Under-Secretary said in moving the Third Reading of the Bill that the prospectus had been issued since the Committee stage. That is in keening with the unseemly haste we have witnessed in dealing with the Order Paper in the Matter of the Third Reading debate Motion. [Interruption.] I can well understand the wish of some hon. Members opposite to speed up the sale of this very profitable...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: India and Pakistan (24 Jan 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: While the action taken is to be welcomed, may I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether he is aware that it seems a little inadequate in the light of the tremendous problems facing the Indian Government at the end of the war and the problems on her frontiers? How long will it be before the British Government recognise Bangladesh following the action of the Indian Government at the end of the war?
