Business of the House (27 Mar 1969)

Mr Edward Milne: Since statements made by both the main political parties this week have highlighted the importance of the principle of equal pay for equal work, would my right hon.

Age Level of Employment (26 Mar 1969)

Mr Edward Milne: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to prevent employers from refusing employment to persons on the sole ground that they are aged 45 years or over.

Colliery Closures (14 Mar 1969)

Mr Edward Milne: I, too, pay tribute to my hon. Friend the Member for Caerphilly (Mr. Fred Evans) not only on bringing forward this Motion, but on the deep humanity with which he moved it.

Member for New Forest (Mr. McNair-Wilson) talked...

Orders of the Day — Development of Tourism Bill (27 Feb 1969)

Mr Edward Milne: I am sure that the hon. Member for Honiton (Mr. Emery) will forgive me if I do not follow him too closely. The right hon. Member for Devon, North (Mr. Thorpe) is right when he says that the tourist industry is not a combination of industries, but an industry in its own right. As such, it has had an impact on many other aspects of holiday making, and has played a major rôle in increasing...

Orders of the Day — Development of Tourism Bill (27 Feb 1969)

Mr Edward Milne: I have not stayed at Claridge's, but having stayed at small boarding-houses and hotels in various conference centres since the S.E.T. was introduced, I believe that it would still be fair to say that while it is not levied on the customer in small hotels and boarding-houses to the same extent as it is in larger hotels, nevertheless to a considerable extent the cost of S.E.T., even in...

Orders of the Day — Development of Tourism Bill (27 Feb 1969)

Mr Edward Milne: That is an entirely different question. My hon. Friend knows full well, as I know from my own experience of Whitley Bay and other places, that, in the case of many of the smaller establishments, if there are no residents in the hotel people are very seldom employed by the owner. But it does come back to the point made by the hon. Member for Honiton, with which I agree, that it is the amount...

Orders of the Day — Development of Tourism Bill (27 Feb 1969)

Mr Edward Milne: I would think that the hon. Gentleman, of all people, would have been the first to agree with me on the question of the abolition of tipping. I have mentioned my own origins in this connection and I would have thought that he shared my view. I make one final plea to the Minister. If we are serious—and the Government have indicated that they are serious in introducing the Bill—over the...

Economic Assessment to 1972 (26 Feb 1969)

Mr Edward Milne: Is my right hon. Friend aware that the rate of growth mentioned in his statement will cause disappointment to people in the development districts who expect an early reduction in unemployment? Will he look into the matter very closely, because it concerns not only the question of unemployment, but the task which he has set himself, of achieving an export surplus in the years ahead? Those...

Anglo-French Relations (24 Feb 1969)

Mr Edward Milne: Is my right hon. Friend aware that our membership of E.F.T.A. still represents our strongest foothold in Europe and that, as he himself said, there are more roads towards European unity than membership of E.E.C.? Will he now consider the feasibility of withdrawing our application for membership of E.E.C. and exploring other roads and other methods towards European unity?

Oral Answers to Questions — Economic Affairs: Northern Region (20 Feb 1969)

Mr Edward Milne: In his capacity as Minister responsible for the region, will my right hon.
