HC Deb 13 December 1937 vol 330 c808
39. Colonel Baldwin-Webb

asked the Minister of Labour the wages and conditions existing in the tile and brick industry in the Broseley-Jacfield area of Shropshire; whether he has knowledge of the differences which exist between employers and employed in this industry; and whether machinery for negotiations exists and is being used?

Mr. E. Brown

I am not in a position to state the rate of wages and conditions of employment prevailing in the brick and tile industry in the Broseley-Jacfield area of Shropshire. I am aware of the differences to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers and my Department have been in touch with both sides. The firms concerned are not parties to the negotiating machinery which exists in the industry.
