§ 52. Mr. Parker
asked the Postmaster-General why members of the staff of the British Broadcasting Corporation are still discouraged from joining trade unions despite the adoption by the British Broadcasting Corporation of the recommendations of the Ullswater Committee that 1526 there should be no restriction upon their freedom to do so?
§ Major Tryon
I am assured by the British Broadcasting Corporation that there is no foundation for the suggestion that members of its staff are discouraged from joining trade unions. If the hon. Member will send me details of any case on which his statement to the contrary is based, I will bring them to the notice of the Governors, upon whom rests the responsibility in this matter.
