HC Deb 13 February 1919 vol 112 c263
43. Colonel W. THORNE

asked the Minister of Labour, whether his attention has been drawn to the difference between the education committee of the Lancashire County Council and the school caretakers with regard to their conditions of labour; whether in December his Department was notified of the dispute; and whether any action will be taken to use the good offices of the Department in securing a settlement?


The Department is in communication with the parties to this dispute and efforts are being made to arrive at a satisfactory settlement. I will communicate with my hon. Friend on this matter and let him know the result of the action which is being taken.
