HC Deb 27 April 1948 vol 450 cc191-2
21. Mr. Willis

asked the Minister of Labour what progress has been made in Scotland in the establishment of joint production committees in industry.

Mr. Isaacs

I regret that at the moment I am unable to add to the reply I gave to my hon. Friend on 20th January.

Mr. Willis

My right hon. Friend stated in that reply that he had been in touch with both sides of industry in this matter. Has any progress been made in those consultations?

Mr. Isaacs

That was the reason for using the word "regret." It was not that I could not give the information, but that I had no information to give. The matter has not been moving as quickly as it ought to have moved, and we are now using other methods, by propaganda and publicity, to try to bring the matter along.
