Orders of the Day — Independent Broadcasting Authority Bill (29 Mar 1974)

Mr Edward Milne: I hope that the hon. Member for Norfolk, South-West (Mr. Hawkins) will forgive me for not following up too closely what he said. I was glad that the hon. Member for Crewe (Mrs. Dunwoody) defended the BBC programme "Look North". The hon. Member for Norfolk, South-West should be reminded that those of us in Northumberland look upon Leeds as being in the deep south. What was particularly...

Orders of the Day — Independent Broadcasting Authority Bill (29 Mar 1974)

Mr Edward Milne: This is a vital point. Nobody criticises the overall watchdog role adopted by the IBA to television. Nevertheless, in a democracy we cannot leave the matter entirely to the authority. This was why we first suggested an inquiry, and there is also the point that we are often told that, since the IBA has overall jurisdiction in day-to-day matters, we cannot ask Questions about those matters or...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: European Free Trade Area (28 Mar 1974)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Prime Minister aware that the agreements made with the EFTA countries gave advantages to those countries at least comparable with those extracted from us on membership of the EEC?

If renegotiation does not come to the point that the Government want, will we...

Agriculture (Eec Ministers' Meeting) (25 Mar 1974)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that his statement represents no substantial shift in Community policy? Can he outline policy on the question of Britain's contribution to the Community budget which still stands at 25 per cent. of the total? What is the position regarding the 20 per cent. annual increase in foodstuff prices between now and the end of the transitional period? Will my right...

Oral Answers to Questions — Court Proceedings (Reporting) (21 Jan 1974)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon. and learned Gentleman aware that only the full reporting of court proceedings gives meaning to the public character of justice in this country, and that, provided the report of a trial is fair and accurate and is published in good faith, it cannot and should not be regarded as contempt of court. In view of the interlocking nature of cases which are appearing before the...

Will he undertake to examine closely the article sent to him by the Inland Revenue Staff Federation exposing the scandal of tax evasion and to deal with it as promptly as possible? Is he aware that at present we are dealing with a situation in which social...

Companies Bill (17 Jan 1974)

Mr Edward Milne: I should like first to apologise for not having followed the debate as closely as I should have liked. I was fortunate enough to hear the two opening speeches, particularly that of my right hon. Friend the Member for Manchester, Cheetham (Mr. Harold Lever), whom we are glad to see is almost back to his old lively self. His command of the English language and the clarity with which he conveys...

Companies Bill (17 Jan 1974)

Mr Edward Milne: On a point of order, Mr. Deputy Speaker. I am sorry to delay the Minister, but in another place about 15 minutes ago the Minister responsible for the energy industries made a statement which greatly affects the people of this country. Cannot we have the same statement made in this House by the appropriate Minister?

Oral Answers to Questions — Eec Ministerial Meetings (16 Jan 1974)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that each succeeding report which he brings from Europe becomes more disturbing not only to the House but to the people of this country?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: Human Rights Covenants (19 Dec 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: I appreciate the Government's difficulties, but have not they shown extreme tardiness, in direct contrast to the speed with which they recognised reactionary régimes like those in Chile, Greece and one or two other places which I shall not name? Is it not time that the decision of 1966 received more consideration from the Government than has been given to it?

European Communities (Treaties) (17 Dec 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: I am sorry that the right hon. and gallant Member for Lewes (Sir T. Beamish), who is a member of the European Parliament—

European Communities (Treaties) (17 Dec 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: It does not matter what name it is given, because its importance is not heightened by its title. I am sorry that, with his experience in that Assembly, the right hon. and gallant Gentleman did not use this opportunity to give us some information about the order. He dealt a good deal with the activities of my right hon. Friend the Member for Stepney (Mr. Shore) and the decisions of the...

European Communities (Treaties) (17 Dec 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: I do not need to be reminded of that vote, because I was one of the 62 persons who voted against it.

As has already been said, the attendance in the House is certainly very thin—
