HC Deb 09 July 1924 vol 175 c2273W

asked the Minister of Labour if his attention has been drawn to a recent attempt by a bank to reaffirm and reimpose an old rule forbidding the staff of the bank to take any part in party politics and instructing them to confine their political activities solely to registering their vote in the ballot box; and whether he is prepared to consider the advisability of dealing with this matter by legislation, so as to make any attempt to prohibit the expression of political opinion by employés unenforceable as a term of contract and invalid as a ground for dismissal?


My attention has not been called to the action referred to by the hon. Member, and I do not think it necessary to take any action in the matter.
