HC Deb 30 November 1949 vol 470 cc1140-1
42. Mr. Dumpleton

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the composition of the Labour Board in British Honduras; and in what way organised workers are represented on the board.

Mr. Creech Jones

The Labour Advisory Board in British Honduras consists of two trade union members, two employers, two officials sitting as independent members and the Attorney-General who is chairman; the Labour Officer is secretary. The two trade union members were nominated by the local trade unions.

Mr. Dumpleton

Is my right hon. Friend aware that it is alleged that one of the trade union members is said to be representing a trade union that does not now exist?

Mr. Creech Jones

I should like to look at that.
