HC Deb 02 July 1919 vol 117 cc1003-4W

asked the Minister of Labour whether he has now decided to establish a separate trade board for Scotland for the distributive trades?


I have received many representations on this subject and, on the information before me, it is clear that there is a strong desire on both the employers' and workers' sides for the establishment of a separate board or boards for Scotland. While I regret that I am not yet in a position to announce a definite decision, I would assure my hon. Friend that this desire is receiving my most sympathetic consideration.
