81. Mr. ALFRED T. DAVIES
asked the Minister of Labour whether he can give any indication of the intentions of the Government with regard to the Report of the Industrial Council unanimously assented to by that body on the 3rd instant?
§ Sir R. HORNE
Attention is being given to this matter, but I am unable as yet to add to the statement made publicly at the recent Industrial Conference.
82. Lieutenant-Colonel MALONE
asked the Minister of Labour what steps he is taking with regard to the formation of a joint industrial council for agriculture?
§ Sir. R. HORNE
As the hon. and gallant Member is doubtless aware, the industry of agriculture is not at present sufficiently closely organised to suit the establishment of a joint industrial council on the lines indicated by the Whitley Committee in its first Report. I am, however, considering, in conjunction with the President of the Board of Agriculture, whether some form of joint body for the industry can be set up.
