HC Deb 21 January 1948 vol 446 cc33-4W
80. Sir J. Lucas

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if he will reconsider the question of non-recognition of the Amalgamated Association of Royal Dockyard ex-apprentices and apprentices, in view of the fact that they were established for many years before 1927 and were received by the Admiralty prior to that date on a number of occasions.

Mr. W. Edwards

No, I am satisfied that existing Whitley machinery provides adequate facilities for dealing with any grievance which may arise relating to pay and conditions of service of Admiralty workpeople.
