HC Deb 18 November 1919 vol 121 c463

1. The Minister may make, or authorise the Industrial Court to make, Rules regulating the procedure of that Court, and those Rules may, amongst other things, provide for references in certain cases to a single member of the Court, and provide for enabling the Court to sit in two or more divisions, and to sit with assessors, for enabling the Court or any division of the Court to act notwithstanding any vacancy in their number, and for enabling questions as to the interpretation of any award to be settled without any fresh report or reference.


I beg to move, in Subsection (1), after the word "assessors" ["to sit with assessors"], to insert the words "who may be men or women."

This is to carry out the previous proposal which I have made with regard to women.

Amendment agreed to.
