§ 9. Mr. Rhys Davies
asked the Minister of Labour what progress is being made in dealing with the conditions of employment of shop assistants by the joint body he has set up covering employers and employed in the distributive trades?
§ Mr. Assheton
I am glad to say that Groups Joint Councils have been set up for the food trades, drapery and clothing trades, newsagents, stationers, tobacco and confectioners' trades and the hairdressing trade. Some meetings have already taken place, and others are in course of arrangement.
