HC Deb 07 February 1938 vol 331 cc681-2W
Mr. McGovern

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether his attention has been drawn to the dispute at Glasgow Empire Exhibition between four German joiners engaged in the erection of a scenic railway and the joiners who are members of the Amalgamated Society of Woodworkers; that the four German joiners agreed, after protracted negotiations, to join this trade union, but the German Ambassador in London ordered the men to leave the union; and whether he will make representations to the German Government against interfering in the internal industrial affairs of this country and that Germans must conform to the rules of the country while working here?

Mr. Eden

I have seen reports of the matter in the Press, but I understand that the matter has now been settled on a basis satisfactory to all concerned.
