113. Mr. W. J. Brown

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that no departmental arrangements have been agreed between the official and staff sides of his Departmental Whitley Council to give effect to the National Whitley Council Agreement dealing with discharges of temporary staffs on redundancy; and whether he will give instructions that negotiations designed to achieve an agreed settlement are to proceed immediately.

Sir S. Cripps

Negotiations are proceeding between representatives of the official and staff sides on a committee of the Board of Trade Departmental Whitley Council which has been set up to work out an agreed scheme for the application of the principles in the National Whitley Council's report on the discharge of redundant temporary staff.
