HC Deb 02 July 1888 vol 328 c45
MR. HOWARD VINCENT (Sheffield, Central)

asked the President of the Board of Trade, If, having regard to the loss caused to British industry in the occurrence of strikes, and the consequent inability to undertake or carry out contracts, Her Majesty's Government will consider the advisability of submitting to Parliament the creation of a mobile Court of Trade Arbitration commanding the confidence of employers and employed and maintained by fees, to which could be referred for friendly adjustment, as far as possible, all disagreements as to wages and other matters, without the necessity of locking out on the one hand or striking on the other?


, in reply, said, that he did not think it would be possible to submit to Parliament any proposals for the creation of such a Court as his hon. Friend suggested. He was not aware that either employers or employes desired to substitute such a Court for the present system of voluntary arbitration.
