Oral Answers to Questions — Employment: Older Workers (26 Nov 1970)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the hon. Gentleman aware of the serious concern that exists about discrimination against people aged over 45 and others in the higher age groups who are looking for employment? Does he accept that some directive, assistance and guidance from the Government is definitely required by employers about this and that he will be failing in his duty if he does not take the necessary action in this...

Industrial Relations (26 Nov 1970)

Mr Edward Milne: The hon. Member for Totnes (Mr. Mawby) will not expect me to comment on his points too closely, but one point that needs to be taken up is the overall responsibility of those who produce the wealth of the nation for the wellbeing of the rest of us. In this debate it is useful to remember that never at any period in our history have the trade unions held in their hands the responsibility...

Industrial Relations (26 Nov 1970)

Mr Edward Milne: I was coming to this point. If the Bill became law, it would not work, because this is not the way to deal with the complex procedures of industry and management, either from the trade union side or from the employers' side. This also was strikingly illustrated in the Donovan Report by the evidence of the Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Labour at the beginning of the war on the now...

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Selective Employment Tax (24 Nov 1970)

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Selective Employment Tax (24 Nov 1970)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Chancellor aware that his reply is disappointing, and that the selective employment tax has been largely turned into a charge on consumers, in effect making it a value-added tax on commodities? When he is abolishing selective employment tax, will he consider also deciding that we shall have no value-added tax either?

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Income Tax (24 Nov 1970)

Mr Edward Milne: asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will take steps to raise the threshold at which income tax payments commence and reorganise the tax system to enable payments to be made to those whose incomes and wages fall below the levels required for income tax payment.

Oral Answers to Questions — National Finance: Income Tax (24 Nov 1970)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that the situation is becoming nonsensical? We are dealing with the question of what is actually in operation now. In the absence of a national minimum wage, raising the threshold of tax is the only way of giving justice to the millions of low wage-earners at present. Why does not the hon. Gentleman take action now, instead of waiting until April of next year?

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Telephone Kiosks (23 Nov 1970)

Mr Edward Milne: asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications if he will introduce legislation to compel the post and telecommunications authorities to consult local residents in regard to the siting of telephone kiosks.

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Telephone Kiosks (23 Nov 1970)

Mr Edward Milne: In view of that disappointing reply, will the right hon. Gentleman look at the possibility of stronger recommendations being made to the Post Office Corporation on this subject? Is he aware that in Cramlington New Town recently the siting of the telephone kiosk and complaints arising from it were replied to by his Department, which said that it did not matter a great deal anyway because the...

Mr Edward Milne: asked the Prime Minister what proposals he has for dealing with the problems of the Northern Region, and if he will give consideration to the appointment of a Minister for the Northern Region with an office based in Newcastle.

Oral Answers to Questions — Northern Region (3 Nov 1970)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Prime Minister aware that the replies of his right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer earlier today have done nothing to allay the fears of those in the North-East about the future under this Government? Is the right hon. Gentleman also aware that claims were made during the election that the appointment of a Minister for the North-East in 1963 by a Conservative Government...

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Killingworth and Cramlington (28 Oct 1970)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that if the Conservative Government had done their job in the late '50s and early '60s in regard to the development of Cramlington and Killingworth new towns, the type of Question that he is facing today would not have to be raised?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Air-Sea Rescues (28 Oct 1970)

Mr Edward Milne: asked the Minister of State for Defence what costs were involved in air-sea rescues undertaken by Coastal Command during 1970 and the nature of the rescues in which the Royal Air Force were involved.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Air-Sea Rescues (28 Oct 1970)

Mr Edward Milne: In paying tribute to Coastal Command for its part in air-sea rescues, may I ask whether the hon. Gentleman will undertake in the very near future, in view of the report on the Fraserburgh lifeboat disaster, to have a look at the question of co-ordination between Coastal Command and the lifeboat service in order further to improve this excellent service?

Coal Industry (27 Oct 1970)

Mr Edward Milne: It is not without significance that the opening week of the Session of Parliament following the Summer Recess should be occupied with the problems of the coal industry. The importance of coal to the economy has been stressed from both sides of the House on many occasions in the past. Coal is the only fuel which does not detrimentally affect our balance of payments position. At the moment, in...

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Road and Rail Services, North-East (15 Jul 1970)

Mr Edward Milne: Whilst I thank the Parliamentary Secretary for his reply, may I ask whether he is aware that his responsibilities do not end there? When the report is completed he must make an examination of the transport needs of the North-East, because traffic congestion is linked with the question of road and rail integration. It is vital that he does not just burke the responsibility and pass it elsewhere.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Services (Reopening) (15 Jul 1970)

Mr Edward Milne: asked the Minister of Transport whether, in view of the traffic congestion and parking difficulties caused in part by rail closures, he will seek powers to enable him to secure the reopening of railway lines.

Oral Answers to Questions — Transport: Rail Services (Reopening) (15 Jul 1970)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Minister aware that that is an extremely disappointing reply? A number of closures of railway lines linking South-East Northumberland with Newcastle have resulted in traffic congestion in that area. Is he aware that the best way of avoiding that congestion is to consider reopening the existing railway links recently closed? As a result of the industrial development of the area in the...
