HC Deb 14 March 1951 vol 485 c1522
20. Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

asked the Postmaster-General whether the committee appointed by him to advise him on claims for recognition by trade unions and staff associations in the Post Office has yet begun its sittings; and when he expects a report from it.

Mr. Hobson

My right hon. Friend understands that the committee has fixed its first meeting for tomorrow. He is unable to say when it is likely to complete its task.

Mr. Boyd-Carpenter

Will the hon. Gentleman ask his right hon. Friend to convey to the committee the fact that among the matters it has to advise upon is a claim which has been outstanding for over a year, and will he also ask his right hon. Friend to urge the Committee to accelerate its sittings?

Mr. Hobson

I think this committee should report as soon as possible.
