§ 55. Sir A. HOLBROOK
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he will consider the desirability of re-framing the Regulations under which the Whitley Councils of the Civil Service are constituted by providing that only persons actually engaged in the service of the Crown shall be eligible to represent their colleagues on the council?
It is not proposed to make any alteration in the existing practice, under which the selection of members of the Staff Side of the National Whitley Council is left to the various groups and associations concerned.
§ Sir A. HOLBROOK
Is my hon. Friend aware that many of the present members of the Council have no connection with the Civil Service, and are mixed up with the trade union organisation, whereas Civil Service employés are not allowed to be affiliated with trade unions?
I am aware that there was some discussion in regard to that matter on the Trade Disputes Bill.
