HC Deb 09 June 1920 vol 130 c424W

asked the Minister of Labour whether the recent awards 180 and 181 issued on the 10th March, 1920, being decisions arrived at by the industrial court between certain trade federations and certain employers' federations, are applicable to all employers employing workmen in the various classes of work to which the awards apply?


The award of the Industrial Court affect directly only the parties to the arbitration proceedings. The question of the extension of the terms of the awards to persons not directly covered by them is a matter for discussion between the employers and the representatives of the workpeople concerned.
