HC Deb 01 December 1931 vol 260 c942
98. Mr. CLARRY

asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the orders lost to British ship-repair yards by lower costs and greater despatch in certain foreign ports, he will consider calling together employés and employers in this industry with the object, by mutual agreement, of suspending the present codification in the regulations defining craftsmen's work, which has been a contributory cause to some of these lost orders?


There is joint machinery in the shipbuilding and repair industry for the discussion by employers' and workers' representatives of matters such as that to which my hon. Friend refers, and it is not necessary, therefore, for me to take steps to call them together.
