HC Deb 07 November 1950 vol 480 c765
44. Mr. Charles Ian Orr-Ewing

asked the Minister of Labour if he has any statement to make on the stoppage of work, which started on 19th October, at Duple Motor Bodies, Limited, of Hendon.

Mr. Isaacs

On 1st November a dispute was reported to me by the company under the provisions of the Conditions of Employment and National Arbitration Order, 1940, and I am in communication with the unions concerned. This stoppage of work involving 1,000 men arises out of the dismissal of a number of workers on grounds of redundancy.

Mr. Orr-Ewing

Has the Minister any evidence to show that this is a further case of disruption of industrial production by Communists.

Mr. Isaacs

I have no observations to make on that case.
