HC Deb 16 December 1912 vol 45 c1099

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the recurrence of industrial troubles, he can expedite the Report of the inquiry by the Industrial Council into the remedies for industrial unrest; and when the evidence is expected to be concluded?


I am informed that it is the intention of the Industrial Council to hear evidence from a few further important witnesses early in the New Year, after which it is proposed to proceed with consideration of the Report. I may add that the Industrial Council's inquiry is scarcely so wide in its scope as is suggested in the question. It refers to the fulfilment and enforcement of industrial agreements.
