§ 9. Dame Irene Ward
asked the Minister of Labour when he hopes to make a statement on the amendment of the Industrial Disputes Order.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
There is nothing I can at present usefully add to the reply which I gave to my hon. Friend on 19th March.
§ Dame Irene Ward
Can my hon. Friend say how long he thinks it will be before he will be able to make a statement on this very important matter?
§ Mr. Macleod
The British Employers' Confederation and the T.U.C. are considering what I put to them, and I expect their views probably in May or June of this year. If my hon. Friend would like me to, I will let her know as soon as I am ready to make another statement.
