§ 61. Squadron-Leader Donner
asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been drawn to the decision of a Ministry of Labour Court of Appeal in the case of seven employees of Henry Hughes & Son, Limited, of Ilford, in which the men dismissed for stopping production in the middle of the week to go to a football match were reinstated, with full pay for the time during which they have been idle since their dismissal; and if, in view of the importance of keeping up full production, he will reconsider this decision and reverse it.
§ Squadron-Leader Donner
Does not the Minister agree that incidents of this character make a mockery of any appeals to produce more?
§ Mr. Isaacs
No, Sir. I would say this, that if this Question had been put down on the Order Paper before yesterday, I might have been able to give an answer and perhaps avoided that Question.
