12. Sir Geoffrey Mender
asked the Minister of Labour what action he is taking with regard to a resolution passed by the shop stewards committee of Henry Meadows, Limited, Wolverhampton, dealing with redundancy, a copy of which has been sent to him.
§ Mr. Bevin
I have received a copy of the resolution to which the hon. Member refers. This criticises the arrangements for dealing with the release of workers from establishments where production is falling. These arrangements were agreed nationally with both sides of industry and any representations regarding them should be submitted by employers or workers through their appropriate organisations.
§ Mr. Gallacher
Will the right hon. Gentleman not consider calling a conference of representatives of trade unions and shop stewards to discuss the question?
§ Sir G. Mander
Are we to understand that in this case no representations have been made through the trade unions concerned?
