HC Deb 22 April 1937 vol 322 cc1894-5
7. Mr. Kennedy

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has further considered the communication from the Scottish Bankers' Association showing that the managements of the Scottish banks are intimidating their employés in such a manner as to prevent the men supporting their association in matters relating to their conditions of employment; and whether any steps can be taken to protect the rights of the employés?

9. Mr. Cassells

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has yet anything to report regarding the allegation of the Scottish Bankers' Association that members of the staffs in the Union and North Banks have been subjected to veiled intimidation by their employers in so far as the question of strike is concerned; and whether he is now prepared to set up a committee of inquiry to investigate the position?

Mr. E. Brown

The Scottish Bankers' Association are, I understand, sending me further information which will receive my careful consideration.
