40. Mr. KELLY

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury the number of Whitley Councils in operation in the various administrative and industrial departments of the Government?

The FINANCIAL SECRETARY to the TREASURY (Mr. Arthur Michael Samuel)

There are 68 departmental Whitley Councils in administrative and legal departments, and 10 industrial Whitley Councils, including Trades Joint Councils, for industrial employés of the Government. This number does not include local district or works committees.


Are those councils all in operation?


I cannot say without notice.
