HC Deb 07 July 1937 vol 326 c363W
Mr. David Adams

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies whether there exists in Trinidad statutory power to set up conciliatory machinery for the settlement of labour disputes; and, if so, is it intended to operate the same forthwith?

Mr. Ormsby-Gore

Yes, Sir, under the Trinidad Industrial Court Ordinance, Chapter 151: but an Industrial Court has not been constituted. In the present case the Governor has appointed a committee of the Executive Council consisting of two officials and an unofficial for the purpose of making recommendations for settlement of the disputes.
