11. Mr. WILLIAMS (for Mr. HANNON)
asked the Minister of Labour whether he can state the total amount of losses in wages sustained by the coal industry, the iron and steel industry, the shipping industry, the engineering industry, the chemical industry and the transport industry, respectively, consequent upon the general strike and coal stoppage since the 1st May of this year?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND
I have not the information which my hon. Friend wants. It might be possible to obtain it, but only by a special inquiry of an extensive character, which cannot well be undertaken until after the termination of the dispute.
