Mr Edward Milne: The hon. Member for Banbury (Mr. Marten) has rightly drawn attention to the question of the wording in the motion about supporting services broadly equivalent to those provided for the delegation of other member nations".

Orders of the Day — Supply: European Parliament (Supporting Services) (11 Jun 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: That may be so. It is perfectly correct, as the right hon. Gentleman said, that at some stage we shall be able to challenge what has been done, but the point that I am making is that we shall not be able to decide what is to be done because the amount allowed under the term supporting services broadly equivalent will be determined by assemblies other than our own. The decision will then have...

Butter (Eec-Soviet Agreement) (11 Apr 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that this is at least one answer for which he does not deserve a pat on the head?

Orders of the Day — European Economic Community (Prices) (3 Apr 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: This debate has been remarkable for two or three things, particularly the absence of the Liberal Party which claims to have campaigned so actively for our entry into Europe and also for the fact that we are dealing with a Government amendment which speaks of giving the highest priority to combating inflation in the European Economic Community.

European Community (Secondary Legislation) (13 Mar 1973)
