§ 38. Mr. J. Silverman
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether the terms of reference of the Departmental Committee on Hallmarking appointed by him include the examination of labour relations and conditions of labour in assay offices.
§ Mr. Erroll
No, Sir, but I have no doubt that the Departmental Committee will consider conditions of labour in so far as they affect the issues covered by the Committee's terms of reference.
§ Mr. Silverman
Does the hon. Gentleman not agree that it is desirable that labour relations and labour conditions should be considered by the Committee?
