HC Deb 11 December 1946 vol 431 cc229-30W
89. Mr. Harold Davies

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies the composition of the Labour and National Service Board in Fiji; and what representatives of trade unions sit on this Board.

Mr. Creech Jones

The Labour and National Service Board in Fiji lapsed in May, 1945, the emergency which it was designed to meet having come to an end. It was replaced early this year by a Labour Advisory Board, of which the Labour Commissioner is chairman and whose membership includes two workers' representatives, one nominated by the Sugar Workers' Union, and one by the Stevedore Workers.
