HC Deb 08 December 1943 vol 395 c983W
Mr. McNeil

asked the Minister of Aircraft Production whether the stoppage of work at the aircraft factory, privately identified to him, between the dates of 23rd and 26th November was dealt with by the normal negotiation machinery; and whether it was reported to the Ministry of Labour?

Sir S. Cripps

The matter in dispute which gave rise to a stoppage of work at this factory was dealt with by the normal machinery of negotiation between the two sides. The Ministry of Labour were in touch with the parties to the dispute, but no formal report of a trade dispute was made to that Department.
