§ Mr. Isaacs (by Private Notice)
asked the Minister of Labour and National Service whether he has any further statement to make about the threatened stoppage of work on the railways.
§ The Minister of Labour and National Service (Sir Walter Monckton)
I have now seen representatives of the unions concerned and of the British Transport Commission. The talks are continuing today, and in the circumstances I am sure the House will excuse me from making any further statement at the moment.
§ Mr. Isaacs
From experience, I know the value of the sentiment in the right hon. and learned Gentleman's last words and I hope that the House will accept his statement. May I, at the same time, say that I am sure the whole House wishes him every success in his endeavours?
