Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Hotels and Restaurants (Complaints) (5 Mar 1973)

Foreign Exchange Markets (2 Mar 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: Although the Chancellor says that there is a difference on this occasion in the closing of the foreign exchange markets, is he aware that the ordinary folk of Britain will be the losers, and that whatever the outcome of the decision, whether it be imposed upon us by the EEC or otherwise, the financiers and speculators will be the people who benefit? It is no use his right hon. Friend the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Broadcasting (Programme Content) (7 Feb 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Private Health Services (6 Feb 1973)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that his reply does not go nearly far enough? Does he appreciate that in areas such as my own, and in South-East Northumberland in general, people are being held back from receiving attention and treatment because of the private patient system that still operates within the health service? If the health service is to mean anything at all, does he agree that...

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon.

Oral Answers to Questions — Education and Science: School Transport (14 Dec 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that he is far too complacent in this matter? I agree that he ought to consult various organisations, but he ought also to consult the local education authorities in many of the new towns. In Cramlington, for example, the road pattern is changing rapidly, and an arbitrary three-mile limit for providing assistance for schoolchildren is entirely wrong. The hon....
