HC Deb 28 October 1952 vol 505 c1734
42. Mr. Morley

asked the Minister of Labour when he proposes to introduce an amendment to the Industrial Disputes Order, 1951 (No. 1376), with the purpose of admitting professional organisations within its purview.

Mr. Watkinson

Certain unforeseen difficulties arose over the making of this amendment, but my right hon. and learned Friend is anxious to get the matter settled and will make a statement as soon as possible.

Mr. Morley

Would it be indiscreet to ask what these unforeseen difficulties were?

Mr. Watkinson

I am sorry to stonewall the hon. Member, but he must ask that question of my right hon. and learned Friend.
