§ 66. Sir W. Smithers
asked the Minister of Food why he consults the T.U.C. When deciding upon special allowances of food for specified seasonal occupations in the agricultural industry.
§ Dr. Summerskill
When necessary my right hon. Friend, following a practice begun in 1940, consults the T.U.C. on questions of special allowances for industrial workers, since the T.U.C. is a body whose knowledge of working conditions in various industries qualifies it to advise on such questions.
