HC Deb 02 November 1939 vol 352 c2079
10. Mr. C. Brown

asked the Minister of Labour whether the strike of hosiery workers at the factory of Messrs. Howard Ford and Company, Woolton, Liverpool, which has been in progress many months, has yet been settled?

Mr. E. Brown

No settlement of the difference between this firm and the union has yet been reached, but my Department is in touch with both sides and with the Joint Industrial Council for the hosiery industry.
