14. Mr. David Adams
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that the cost of rearmament may be materially increased through friction arising from the strain and fatigue of increased speed in factories; and whether, with a view to diminishing this, special measures of co-operation between works management and employés will be considered?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I am not aware that there is at present any lack of co-operation between works managements and workpeople in this connection.
Will the Minister look into the matter further, because there is a good deal of evidence in the Press and elsewhere that such co-operation is not as general as it ought to be?
§ Mr. Gallacher
Is the Minister not aware that there is a strike threatened at Beardmore's, at Parkhead, arising out of the conduct of the management?
