§ 5. Mr. Colegate
asked the Minister of Labour what applications for increases of wages have been submitted by workers in the major industries of the country since the date of the Porter Award on wages in the coal industry; and what are the particulars of such applications.
§ Mr. Colegate
In cases where a settlement is not reached and an award has to be made and it is notified to him that there is a blunder in the award, which makes it unworkable, will either my right hon. Friend or some Member of the Cabinet examine such an award, before the industry concerned is thrown into confusion by its attempted enforcement?
§ Mr. Shinwell
Does my right hon. Friend seriously suggest that there has been no upset as a result of the Porter Award?
