§ 47. Mr. AMMON
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether Regulations have been framed, in accordance with Section 5 of the Trade Disputes Act, 1927, to determine the position of civil servants who are members of the Law Society?
§ The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Arthur Michael Samuel)
Regulations, dated 30th August, 1927, were made by the Treasury in pursuance of the requirements of Section 5 of the Trade Disputes and Trade Unions Act, 1927. I am advised that the Law Society is not an organisation of which the primary object is to influence or affect the remuneration and conditions of employment of its members within the meaning of Clause 5 of the Act referred to and of the Regulations made in pursuance thereof.
§ Mr. SAMUEL
I can only say that I am advised that the Law Society does not come within the meaning of Clause 5 of the Act referred to.
