§ 54. Mr. Buchanan
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of the serious stoppage of work now taking place at the aircraft works of Messrs. Hawkers, Brooklands; that this firm is engaged on important Government contracts; and whether his Department have taken any steps to bring the parties together?
§ Mr. E. Brown
According to my information this stoppage of work is not recognised by the trade unions concerned. I understand that efforts are being made by the unions to secure a resumption of work. When work is resumed the agreed machinery in the industry for the settlement of disputes can operate.
§ Commander Marsden
Is the Minister's Department taking any steps to endeavour to bring together the employers and the workmen?
