Debate on the Address: First Day (31 Oct 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: My hon. Friend the Member for Flint, East (Mr. Barry Jones) has ably and courageously outlined the problems which confront his constituency, and we all know the concern that is felt for those who are undergoing the processes of industrial change. The debate on the Gracious Speech has in the past been described as the grand inquest by the nation. Therefore, it is a little unfortunate that on...

Forestry (18 Oct 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: The previous Adjournment debate on the subject of forestry took place on 5th June, 1972, and a great deal of that discussion centred on the forthcoming review of our forestry areas. At that time we were discussing the siting of a pulp mill in the north-east of England, and we were told by the Parliamentary Secretary that, amongst other things, the timber requirements were the major obstacle...

European Communities — Efta Countries (Agreements) (26 Jul 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon. and learned Gentleman aware that he is talking nonsense in referring to our travelling on a train? Does not this agreement represent a victory for the non-applicant EFTA countries, rather than for those who are within the EEC at the moment? Is he further aware that if he and his right hon. Friend the Prime Minister had pursued this policy from 1957 onwards, the mainstream of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: European Economic Community (24 Jul 1972)

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: European Economic Community (24 Jul 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that that answer is rather vague in view of the tremendous propaganda efforts of both political parties assisted by the European Movement prior to our decision on entry? Is it not time that concrete proposals were made about this movement so that we would know precisely where it stood during the Common Market discussions and what finances were available to it?

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: European Economic Community (24 Jul 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon. and learned Gentleman aware that the conference between the non-applicant EFTA countries and the enlarged EEC is to take place at the wrong time? It should have preceded any of our negotiations with the EEC if we had any hope of achieving the type of Europe we wanted because, tied as we are by the European Communities Bill and the Community regulations, the prospects of...

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Forestry Policy (18 Jul 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Will the hon. Gentleman pay attention to that part of the review of forestry policy dealing with the provision of jobs in development districts and the use of forestry resources to set up industries which can find it of advantage to use the supplies which are undoubtedly available?

Schedule 1: Counties and Metropolitan Districts in England (6 Jul 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: I wish to make two points in connection with Amendment No. 910, which is supported by the hon. Member for Tynemouth (Dame Irene Ward), who is unable to be present. The first is that it is possibly a unique Amendment in the sense that a referendum was held in the village to decide its contents. Secondly, and possibly even more important, it covers the area in which I live. I can give no...

Oral Answers to Questions — South-East Northumberland (4 Jul 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: asked the Prime Minister if he will make an official visit to South-East Northumberland.

Oral Answers to Questions — South-East Northumberland (4 Jul 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Prime Minister aware that he has not treated this Question with the seriousness it deserves? Having recently appointed a Minister to be responsible for the development areas and having seen how little has been done since that appointment, it is necessary for the Prime Minister to keep a check on his appointments. Does he recollect that as President of the Board of Trade in 1963 he...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Tourist Accommodation (Registration) (26 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Minister aware that there he has been dragging his feet, and that his Department has been dragging its feet, on this matter for far too long, and that this is a matter of vital importance not only to the tourist industry but to the country in so far as the balance of payments is affected? Will he start doing something now?

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Meat (20 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if, in view of recent policy changes in regard to meat prices and the increase in cost to the consumer, he will now introduce legislation imposing price control to protect the interests of the housewife and those employed in the retail and distributive trades.

Oral Answers to Questions — Agriculture, Fisheries and Food: Meat (20 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is it not unfortunate that the Minister has no answer to give to a Question of this kind, and will not measures which exclude any question of price control be meaningless in dealing with the present situation? Does the right hon. Gentleman realise that his very brief answer gave the game away about Common Market legislation, because when we are in the Community not only will prices escalate...

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Telephone Installation (7 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: asked the Minister of Posts and Telecommunications how many new telephone subscribers there have been in the last 12 months; and how many are currently awaiting installation.

Oral Answers to Questions — Posts and Telecommunications: Telephone Installation (7 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the figures cloak the fact that no credit can be reflected on anybody concerned in this operation? Does he appreciate than an overhaul o the telephone services is long overdue? Does he realise that while all the national figures are disturbing, the figures applying to development districts are particularly disturbing in view of the adverse effects they...

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Advance Factories, Blyth (5 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what inquiries have been received for the Government advance factories on the Kitty-brewster Estate, Blyth; what are the prospects in regard to job opportunities in the advance factories during the next six months; and if he will make a statement .

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Advance Factories, Blyth (5 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Minister aware that we are not taking adequate opportunities in regard to the available advance factories in development districts? Does he not agree that there are far too many job opportunities lying wasted in un-tenanted advance factories? Therefore, will the Government take special measures in the coming weeks to remedy the situation?

Oral Answers to Questions — Trade and Industry: Advance Factories, Blyth (5 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: In view of the unsatisfactory nature of the reply, I give notice that I shall seek to raise this matter on the Adjournment at the earliest possible moment.

Death of His Royal Highness the Duke of Windsor (5 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: I apologise for intervening on what is a formal occasion. I am certain that the Prime Minister will not misunderstand me when I say that we have listened to an address with a certain degree of hypocrisy attached to it. In the last analysis it was the House that sent the person whom we are mourning today into exile. When we talk about bridging the gap between the Victorian era and the present...

Orders of the Day — Cambois, Northumberland (Pulp Mill Project) (5 Jun 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: There is no need to stress in an Adjournment debate dealing with the siting of new industry in my constituency the need for new jobs in an area where the unemployment rate is 10 per cent. to 12 per cent. and has been for a number of years. In 1959 the industrial area of Cambois was scheduled by the Northumberland County Council as an industrial area. We are dealing with a village which has...
