§ 42. Mr. Day
asked the Minister of Labour the reasons supplied to him for the relay in negotiating agreements between the cinematograph exhibitors and the employes for those areas in which agreements have not yet been completed; and what action he now proposes to take following the inquiry held by his Department into the working conditions and hours of person employed in the cinematograph industry?
§ Mr. E. Brown
As regards the first part of the question, I am not aware of any avoidable delay in negotiating agreements of the kind referred to. It will obviously be a matter of time to reach agreements covering all districts, and my information is that steady progress is being made. As regards the second part of the question, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given to him on 2nd February.
§ Mr. T. Williams
Has any agreement yet been reached in Manchester; and, if not, what action or help has the right hon. Gentleman's Department given to produce it?
70. Mrs. Adamson
asked the Minister of Labour how many agreements have been made between employers and the trade unions affecting the conditions and wages of attendants in the cinema industry?
