HC Deb 21 April 1920 vol 128 c381
31. Colonel Sir F. HALL

asked the Minister of Labour if his attention has been called to the action of the electrical trade union with regard to membership by employés of the Southampton electricity department of the Electrical Power Engineers' Association; and if, in view of the recent statement by his predecessor that the association is a bonâ fide trade union and recognised by the Government as such, it is proposed to take any action to prevent the electrical union employing such methods of intimidation?


My Department offered its services in this dispute, and an agreement was reached on Monday night. I am glad to say that work has now been resumed.
