HC Deb 20 November 1945 vol 416 cc222-3
37. Sir J. Mellor

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has yet received the final Report from the Catering Wages Commission in connection with the future of tourism and the rehabilitation of the catering industry, which was promised by the Commission in an interim Report published a few months ago; and, if so, whether he will publish this final Report.

Mr. Isaacs

I have only just received the Report, the recommendations of which concern a number of Departments. No decision has yet been taken on the question of publication.

Sir J. Stanley Holmes

Why has the Minister not carried out any of the recom- mendations of the Catering Wages Commission in its Interim Report which was published 12 months ago?

Mr. Speaker

The Question asked was not why the Minister had not carried out recommendations, but whether he had received and would publish the final Report.

Mr. G. S. Taylor

Surely the House is entitled to receive this Report? Surely it should be published so that this House can see it?

Mr. Isaacs

I received this Report on Saturday morning. I have only just had a glance at it, and the question of its publication has not yet been decided, cither for or against.
