§ 12. Mr. Banfield
asked the Minister of Labour whether he has a statement to make as to legislation to enable the machinery of the Trade Board Act to be speeded up?
§ Mr. E. Brown
Consultations with employers' and workers' representatives are in progress with a view to early legislation.
§ Mr. Banfield
Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind that because of the increase in the cost of living and the rise in prices these trades under trade boards will have to make applications for increases, and that the present procedure is too slow?
