HC Deb 30 July 1941 vol 373 cc1424-5W
Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will, in future, in appointing persons to serve on any panels or courts dealing with industrial problems, choose such persons from the ranks of trade unionists covering the industries concerned?

Mr. Bevin

I regret that I cannot agree to this proposal. It is often the case that, in the constitution of impartial tribunals, it is desirable to appoint representatives from other industries than those directly concerned. This is a course which has the general agreement of employers' organisations and trade unions.
