Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Water Safety (14 Dec 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: May I express my gratitude to the Home Office for the circular, particularly on behalf of the coastal authorities in my constituency? It is an excellent contribution to safety in bathing areas and should be followed up, because more and more people are taking advantage of leisure opportunities, and the protection given by the marking buoys will prevent many disasters at the seaside in the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Water Safety (14 Dec 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Minister aware that this matter follows on from my previous Question, and is ancillary to it? Safety in bathing areas on sea coasts and in harbour areas is vital. Once again, we congratulate the Department on the attitude that it has taken in the matter. Will it continue to press local authorities and see that the commission for which we are asking is brought into being?

Oral Answers to Questions — Home Department: Consumer Protection (14 Dec 1972)

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Cigar Advertising (12 Dec 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Will the right hon. Gentleman have a closer look at this, because the legislation banning cigarette advertising is being undermined by the wide boys of the advertising industry who, putting profits before people, are changing the techniques of their packaging and print- ing, and making cigar packets resemble cigarette packets and using them in widespread advertising? Is this not something at...

Industrial Policy (12 Dec 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: The hon. Gentleman mentioned a four-year cycle in terms of investment coming to reality and beginning to function. Is he not aware that he has destroyed his own argument, because his right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer has been going round the country talking about a booming Britain in which every industry is on an expansion course? Does he not realise that if the four-year...

William Timpsons (Take-over Bids) (5 Dec 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: I beg to ask leave to move the Adjournment of the House, under Standing Order No. 9, for the purpose of discussing a specific and important matter that should have urgent consideration, namely, the Government decision to refer the takeover by Sears Holdings of William Timpsons, the footwear retailers, to the Monopolies Commission, allowing the United Drapery Stores to proceed with their...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Prices (4 Dec 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Will the right hon. and learned Gentleman take note of the massive increases being imposed on holidaymakers by the travel and holiday firms, and in particular of the fact that the bulk of these holidays will be booked during the freeze although the holidays themselves will be taken later? Will he examine this point?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Tyre Industry (4 Dec 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: While thanking the Minister for the latter part of his reply, which indicates that the firms are getting together, may I ask him whether he is aware that his answer to the Question will cause widespread concern in southeast Northumberland and the Northern Region because of the heavy losses sustained by Pirelli, since Italy was paraded to us as an example of regional development within the...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Tyre Industry (4 Dec 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: On a point of order. In view of the extremely unsatisfactory nature of the reply, I wish to give notice that I shall raise the matter further.

Unemployment Statistics (22 Nov 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Minister aware that the method he has outlined of compiling unemployment statistics merely tinkers with the problem, and that spreading the figures over a larger number of pages, sweeping them under the carpet and avoiding questions in the House is not the way to go about it? The Minister mentioned the regions. What is he doing about migration from the areas of high unemployment,...

Immigration Rules (22 Nov 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: My hon. Friend has referred to the campaign of the Daily Express. I would like to make the point that had the Daily Express conducted its campaign against the Market with sufficient courage it, too, would have been raising this point at the time that we were voting for entry.

Oral Answers to Questions — Environment: Football Association (Players' Transfers) (15 Nov 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: As the Minister has been dubbed the Minister for Sport he cannot dodge his responsibilities in this matter. The recommendations of the Chester Committee could be brought out of cold storage. The cattle market in the selling and buying of football players should stop. The Chester Report made some good recommendations in this matter.

Business of the House (2 Nov 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: In view of the latest evidence about City buccaneering in the Private Notice Question today, will the Leader of the House arrange for an early debate in this House on the question of takeover bids, mergers and monopolies, particularly arising from the Pirelli-Dunlop merger two years ago, and the recent losses by Pirelli, and its effect on employment in my constituency and other areas? May we...
