§ 13. Mr. RHYS DAVIES
asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he will consider taking steps to bring the laws governing labour conditions in Palestine more into conformity with those of this country?
Mr. M. MacDONALD
Labour legislation covers a wide field, and it is not clear what particular aspect of the question the hon. Member has in mind. If, however, the hon. Member has any specific points in view, perhaps he will be good enough to communicate further with me.
§ Mr. DAVIES
Is the hon. Member aware that trade unionism is prohibited in all trades in Palestine and particularly on the railways? Will the hon. Member look into the matter?
