Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Development (Newcastle Offices) (17 Apr 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will consider setting up a Government office in Newcastle for the new Minister for Development in view of the fact that the other main development areas, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland already have offices in being for their respective areas.

Oral Answers to Questions — Ministry of Development (Newcastle Offices) (17 Apr 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the Minister aware that we are not asking about the responsibility of the departments in the various development areas to him but about his responsibility to them? If development area policy is to mean anything in reducing the high unemployment figures, the Minister would do better to tackle that job sited on the spot. For the reasons I stated in the Question, Newcastle is the obvious...

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: European Economic Community (27 Mar 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: If the French referendum turns out in the way the right hon. and learned Gentleman desires, is there any possibility of Britain thinking again about holding a referendum?

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry (21 Mar 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: This is the third debate on the coal industry that we have had in the last eight parliamentary days, and the possibility of repetition looms large. I apologise for not being present to hear the Minister introduce these orders; another engagement prevented my being here. I do not mean to be disrespectful to the hon. Gentleman—I am sure that he will agree—when I say that there is not much...

Orders of the Day — Coal Industry (20 Mar 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: The hon. Member for Bosworth (Mr. Adam Butler) for some part of his speech dwelt on the supposed impending contraction of the mining industry. He followed the Tory trend in the weeks after the Wilber-force Report by appearing to lecture to the miners that they should not have applied for a wage increase at all since all they were doing was running themselves out of their jobs. It should be...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Fisheries Protection (16 Mar 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: asked the Minister of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the fisheries protection measures in being at the present time on the Northumberland coast, and in particular in the area from Coquet Island to Berwick-on-Tweed.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Fisheries Protection (16 Mar 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is it not to be regretted that this information was not available to the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster when he was on the Continent negotiating the fisheries agreement? The imposition of a six-mile limit on the stretch of coast mentioned in my Question clearly indicates that in that area, as well as on the rest of the East Coast, there should at least be a 12-mile limit for fishery...

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Fisheries Protection (16 Mar 1972)

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

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Fisheries Protection (16 Mar 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: asked the Minister of State for Defence if he will make a statement on the additional fisheries protection measures needed on the Northumberland coast, particularly in the area from Coquet Island to Berwick-on-Tweed, as a result of the fisheries agreement conditional on Great Britain's entry into the European Economic Community.

Oral Answers to Questions — Defence: Fisheries Protection (16 Mar 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the hon. Gentleman aware that that answer is to be even more deplored than his answer to my previous Question on the same subject? Is he aware that this extra Government expenditure for the British taxpayer on fisheries protection vessels is made necessary because the fisheries agreement was not concluded with the Six until this House has decided on principle to enter the European Economic...

Oral Answers to Questions — Social Services: Supplementary Benefits (14 Mar 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the amount of payments in social security during the dispute reflect the deplorably low rate of wages prevailing in that industry? Will he make certain that he does not submit to the blandishments of his hon. Friends who want this very valuable service to be removed entirely?

Fuel and Power Industries (10 Mar 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: A bad source.

Fuel and Power Industries (10 Mar 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: The hon. Member for Derbyshire, South-East (Mr. Rost) is to be congratulated on his interesting and constructive contribution to this debate and on the points he has raised. He will appreciate that I have neither the technical know-how nor the time to take up all his remarks. He is also to be congratulated on his forthrightness in declaring his present interests in this subject, which is in...

Fuel and Power Industries (10 Mar 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: If the hon. Gentleman had been more patient, he would have heard a number of other figures bearing out what I was saying. However, even taking his figure of £28·4;94 for a week's work in an arduous industry, if the hon. Gentle man is prepared to defend a wage rate of that kind he is perfectly entitled to do so. It is true that as a result of an increase of £4·50 those under the power...

Fuel and Power Industries (10 Mar 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: That is why it is on the Order Paper.

Tourist Industry (8 Mar 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: I beg to move, That leave be given to bring in a Bill to authorise the establishment of a Ministry of Tourism with powers to lay down a code of conduct for the tourist industry and to consider and act on complaints made by holidaymakers regarding tourist facilities both in this country and in respect of travel overseas; and for matters connected therewith. [Interruption.]

Tourist Industry (8 Mar 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Thank you very much, Mr. Speaker. The Bill underlines the need for a Ministry of Tourism. Failure to grasp the opportunity to appoint such a Ministry under the Development of Tourism Act, 1969, makes this Bill not only necessary but imperative. There is no need to stress the fast growing industry which tourism is both at home and overseas. It provides work in many parts of this country where...

Mr Edward Milne: asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what proportion of the £7,500 paid by Her Majesty's Government to the European Movement during the country. wide discussions on Great Britain's entry into the European Economic Community was paid to the northern regional officer of the movement; and if he will make a statement.

Oral Answers to Questions — Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs: European Movement (6 Mar 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Is the right hon. and learned Gentleman aware that that is a disappointing reply, because it fails to give those of us in the North East an opportunity of understanding the amount of pressure which was put on people throughout the country during the supposedly democratic debate on Britain's entry into the Common Market? Does not the right hon. and learned Gentleman realise that pumping money...

Coal Industry (6 Mar 1972)

Mr Edward Milne: Will the Secretary of State reconsider the Government's decision about continued coal imports, particularly in view of the high price of imported coal compared to the price of home-produced coal? Will he also look at the question of supply and demand? Will he consider both these matters particularly in view of the Government's continual talk about the effects of cost inflation?
