HC Deb 18 February 1919 vol 112 c746
76. Mr. CROOKS

asked the Financial Secretary to the War Office whether, before the Supplementary Estimates for that Department are dealt with, he will lay before Parliament the constitution and regulations of the Whitley councils for the several industrial establishments of the War Office; and whether he will take care that due notice is given to the trade unions of the various sections of the civil employés of the number of representatives that, as recommended in the Whitley Report, each of them is to elect to such Councils?

Captain GUEST

The whole question of the application of the proposals of the Whitley Committee to industrial establishments under Government Departments is receiving the consideration of the Government. The War Office will, of course, conform to the principles and regulations adopted.
