HC Deb 10 May 1927 vol 206 cc213-4W
Major GLYN

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury, with regard to the negotiating machinery at present available to civil servants, whether established or otherwise, what is the proper channel through which representations are made to the head of a Department; and whether there exists any machinery outside a particular Department but within the Civil Service by which matters may be taken to a higher tribunal?


It is for the head of each Department to determine, in his discretion, the proper channel through which representations should be made to him. I am not clear as to the meaning of the latter half of the question, and I do not think that I can add anything to the information as to arbitration machinery which I gave to my hon. and gallant Friend in my reply of the 4th May.
