European Communities (Treaties) (17 Dec 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: The hon. Gentleman has mentioned the regional policies which are determined by successive Governments in this country.

Indeed, there is ample evidence in the lifetime of the Community that various countries have had restrictions placed upon their regional development...

Proclamation of State of Emergency (12 Dec 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: Will the right hon. Gentleman tell us whether the provisions that he has outlined, and which we shall subsequently be debating, also cover the-financial implications and the financial state of the nation?

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Arms and Equipment Orders (20 Nov 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the method of placing orders adopted by his Ministry is very often detrimental to firms in the development districts and that the Department should be looking for possibilities of creating jobs as well as at the placing of orders? Is it not time that the old-boy network operating in this connection was broken? Is the right hon. Gentleman aware, further,...

Boots Company Limited and House of Fraser (7 Nov 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon. and learned Gentleman aware that there is already evidence from this latest example of City buccaneering of the need for a reference to the Monopolies Commission? Does he not realise that the increase in share prices of 30p to 35p represents a tycoon-type gain, made in something like 30 to 45 minutes and equivalent to the wages of a shop assistant working in the stores I...

Employment (2 Nov 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: The hon. Member for Bournemouth, East and Christchurch (Mr. Cordle) touched on the problems of the disabled. A matter which needs looking into thoroughly is that of disabled people who apply for vehicles and who are told that they must first obtain employment before concessions are granted to them. The hon. Gentleman raised a very interesting point. On past occasions, when the Gracious...

Employment (2 Nov 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: We have raised this matter for precisely the reason touched on by the hon. and learned Gentleman. I have reminded the House of the earlier legislation and I am showing how that legislation was abused by the police. Does the hon. and learned Gentleman defend the use of 30 or 40 police officers, men and women, in dealing with a bingo session at a club? He knows the facts from the report...

Oral Answers to Questions — Questions to Ministers (18 Jul 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: On a point of order, Mr. Speaker. I seek your guidance and pro- tection for back benchers seeking to raise questions in the House on the subject of the Poulson inquiries and related matters. Briefly, there are two factors I want you to examine. The first is the question of the transference of a Tribunal of Inquiry question from the Prime Minister to the Home Secretary—

Oral Answers to Questions — Questions to Ministers (18 Jul 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: I understood, Mr. Speaker, that one of your roles was the protection of back benchers in the execution of your duties. As you have given your ruling, I will seek to raise the matter in other quarters. The second point is the use of the sub judice ruling by the Table Office. The wording I used—I seek your guidance on this—was that I asked a Question and added the words, "in view of recent...

Oral Answers to Questions — Questions to Ministers (18 Jul 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: With due respect on this point of order, Mr. Speaker, I discussed this matter this morning both with your office and with the Chief Clerk of the Table Office. I am now asking for your ruling in the House.

Oral Answers to Questions — Questions to Ministers (18 Jul 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. My constituents sent me to the House of Commons and, although I try to observe the responsibilities of the House and to carry out its procedures, my duty is to raise matters in the Chamber and not necessarily with Mr. Speaker privately. I am pressing my point of order—

Oral Answers to Questions — Questions to Ministers (18 Jul 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: I want to make just one final point on this point of order. It is not necessary for Speakers in their duty as Speakers of the House to follow the bad precedents set by their predecessors.

Oral Answers to Questions — Questions to Ministers (18 Jul 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: Further to that point of order, Mr. Speaker. You have referred to the time of the House that I have occupied. I have been necessarily brief on this matter and had I been given a ruling the time that this matter occupied would have been something under two minutes. Surely that is not too much to ask for in a matter of this importance.

Common Agricultural Policy (12 Jul 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: When will the right hon. Gentleman cease treating the House with contempt in regard to information about the Community? On the last occasion that he addressed the House he adopted an identical tactic, thus underlining the fact that the House no longer has any authority over decisions taken in the Community and that what is now needed is a drastic review of the decision which we took on 28th...
