HC Deb 05 April 1922 vol 152 c2220
24. Mr. HASLAM

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will consider the desirability of issuing a code of rules, drawn up by his Department, which may be voluntarily accepted and embodied in the rules of employers' associations and trade unions with a view of ensuring greater satisfaction with regard to the secrecy of the ballot; and whether, should he view the suggestion favourably, he will also consider the desirability of taking such steps as may be necessary for supplying copies of such rules and ballot papers to such associations as may desire to consider this subject, with the view of conducting such ballots in a manner similar to that now exercised in connection with Parliamentary and municipal elections?


My hon. Friend's proposal is an interesting one, but I should prefer not to express an opinion upon it without further consideration.
