§ Mr. R. Morgan
asked the Minister of Fuel and Power whether he is aware of this dissatisfaction felt by managements in regard to the award of the Porter minimum without adequate safeguards against the possibility of some men refusing to give adequate work in return for the minimum; and whether he will consider introducing such safeguards as were provided under the old minimum wage rules.
Major Lloyd George
The answer to first part of the Question is "Yes, Sir." As regards the second part, I would point out that any such amendment of the Award is a matter for the National Reference Tribunal and not for myself.
