HC Deb 07 April 1938 vol 334 c497
13. Commander Marsden

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is now in a position to make any further statement concerning the strike at Hawker's aviation works at Weybridge?

Mr. E. Brown

I regret to say that this stoppage of work continues and that serious delay in production is being caused. I hope, however, that new efforts now being made to secure a resumption of work will be successful, and that the causes of the dispute will be dealt with in accordance with the agreed constitutional procedure.

Commander Marsden

Are the strikers in receipt of strike pay?

Mr. Brown

No, Sir; this is an unofficial strike, and the union concerned is using its best endeavours.

Mr. Buchanan

Is the Minister aware that certain of the men are receiving strike pay from their union?

Mr. Brown

That is not according to my information.

Mr. Buchanan

Make another inquiry and you will find out.
