§ Mr. Younger
The present numbers are 43, of which 18 are stationed in the regions and Berlin. The function of the manpower adviser is to exercise general oversight over a wide range of questions in the industrial and social field. These include the relationship between German Governmental bodies, trades unions and employers; the establishment and fostering of machinery and consultation and for the settlement of industrial disputes; terms and conditions of the employment of German labour and reporting upon German legislation relating to employment, wages, working conditions and social security; to advise on all questions relating to German participation in the International Labour Conferences and the work of the International Labour Organisation.
§ Sir Ralph Glyn
In view of the fact that Sir Brian Robertson is leaving, and that there has not been a Report by the Estimates Committee on functions and expenditure in Germany, will the Foreign Office take the opportunity of issuing a White Paper to show exactly what the situation is in the handing over of this responsibility by Sir Brian Robertson?
