§ 32. Major BLAIR
asked the Minister of Health if his attention has been drawn to a recommendation carried by the Poplar Borough Council Works Committee on the 27th November to the effect that extra pay be allowed to hammermen who are members of a trade organisation or join within four weeks; and, if so, will he take steps to stop this form of coercion?
§ The MINISTER of HEALTH (Dr. Addison)
My attention has not otherwise been drawn to the recommendation re-felled to in my right hon. Friend's question, but in any case I have no jurisdiction in the matter.
§ Earl WINTERTON
May I ask the right hon. Gentleman whether the auditors in his Department will sanction extra expenditure of this kind?
§ Dr. ADDISON
I am informed that in this particular matter we have no jurisdiction.
