§ Mr. BALFOUR (by Private Notice)
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is in a position to give any information concerning the disputes in the jute and pottery industries?
§ The MINISTER of LABOUR (Sir Montague Barlow)
With regard to the jute dispute, I am glad to be able to state that, thanks to the assistance which Sir David Shackle-ton has been able to give on behalf of my Department, an agreement has been arrived at as a result of which work will be recommenced.
In the case of the pottery trade, the employers' and workers' organisations have now been able to reach substantial agreement on the matters in dispute.
