§ Mr. LAWSON (by Private Notice)
asked the Minister of Labour what 2140 is the present position with regard to the joint representations made to him by the organisations in the manufacturing section of the cotton industry in reference to the legalisation of agreed rates of wages?
§ Sir H. BETTERTON
I propose to have a further meeting at once with the employers' and operatives' organisations, and, subject to the result of that discussion, I propose to introduce legislation. It will be understood that any such legislation would be limited to the manufacturing section of the cotton industry, and would be regarded as an experiment.
