64. Me. Boyd-Carpenter

asked the Minister of Fuel and Power what were the provisions as to duration and date of expiry of the agreement on wages between employers and employed in the coal industry in force at the date of the vesting of the coal industry in public ownership.

Mr. Shinwell

The National Wages Agreement of 1944 provided that not less than six month's notice of termination should be given by either party, and that such notice should be given before the beginning of 1948.
