HC Deb 04 August 1922 vol 157 cc1920-1W

asked the Minister of Labour whether his attention has been called to the case of Professor Jones, who has served for some time as appointed member on the Stamped or Pressed Metal Wares Trade Board; why he appointed Professor Jones in that capacity; why he has decided not to reappoint Professor Jones as appointed member of the board: whether he has been memorialised by the employers and workers on the Trade Board, who have expressed their opinion as to the high ability and competence of Professor Jones; whether the board were consulted before his decision was come to; if not, why he did not consult the board; and whether, in the light of the representations which have been made to him, he will take steps with a view to the reinstatement of Professor Jones at the earliest possible moment as a member of tits board?


I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply, of which I am sending him a copy, given yesterday to the hon. Member for the Forest of Dean (Mr. Wignall) on this matter.
