HC Deb 15 July 1912 vol 41 c28

asked, in view of the fact that neither employers or employed in the lace trade in Nottingham, numbering many thousands of people, are represented on the insurance committee of that city, and in view of the fact that the boot and shoe operatives, who number only about 200, have a representative on that committee, whether the right hon. Gentleman will state what steps he is prepared to take to remedy this treatment of an important trade?


At the suggestion of the Nottingham Chamber of Commerce, the chairman of that council, who is also president of the Leavers Lace Manufacturers' Association, was appointed a member of that committee.
