HC Deb 20 December 1945 vol 417 cc1688-9W
Squadron-Leader Donner

asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the number of unofficial strikes and the threat which they constitute to the principle of collective bargaining and the established machinery for conciliation, he will give an assurance that His Majesty's Government will at no time enter into such negotiations with the leaders of such strikes as may secure any advantage to those who have broken the criminal law with impunity.

Mr. Isaacs

I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the replies which I gave him on 7th and 29th November. The precise steps to be taken in any particular case must necessarily be determined by the circumstances of that case, but I can give the hon. Member an assurance that there will be no departure from the policy of maintaining and supporting the constitutional machinery of any industry.
