§ 16. Mr. Mander
asked the Minister of Labour the names of the industries in which joint industrial councils now 553 exist; the approximate number of employes involved; and what councils have been formed and ceased to exist in the last two years?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I will, if I may, circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT a list of the joint industrial councils in operation according to the latest available information.
During the last two years three councils have been reconstituted on a wider basis, one council re-established, and three new councils formed, while no councils have been dissolved. I regret I am not in possession of statistics showing the numbers of workpeople involved.
