HC Deb 26 July 1915 vol 73 cc1937-8
43. Mr. O'GRADY

asked the Minister of Munitions whether the Leeds branches of the Amalgamated Society of Engineers and the Amalgamated Union of Clothiers' Operatives have claimed representation on the local munitions advisory committee, and that such claims have been refused; and, if so, will consideration be given to the fact that the branches of the two unions named represent a number of work people employed in the production of munitions and equipments, and that their claims to be represented on the local ad visory committee shall be granted?


I will make inquiries into this matter. The question of the labour representation on munitions committees is under consideration in consultation with the National Advisory Committee on Labour. It is hoped to link up the work of the local labour advisory committees with the National Advisory Committee, which is housed at the Ministry of Munitions, and with the Labour Department of the area offices of the Ministry of Munitions.
