HC Deb 14 April 1937 vol 322 cc1012-3
83. Mr. Leslie

asked the Minister of Labour what is the position in regard to the discussions which are taking place between employers' organisations and the trade unions under the auspices of the Ministry of Labour to deal with the question of wages and conditions in the distributive trades?

Mr. E. Brown

I am glad to say that at a meeting of the employers' organisations and trade unions in Scotland last week it was decided to set up a Joint Council for the Retail Distributive Trades in Scotland. A meeting between employers' organisations and trade unions is also taking place to-day in London.
