HC Deb 02 November 1948 vol 457 c66W
Mr. H. Hynd

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what action was taken by the Government in British Guiana to put pressure on the sugar workers during the recent strike to join one of the two established trade unions.

Mr. Creech Jones

It is the policy of the Government of British Guiana to encourage workers to join the recognised trade unions and to discourage the establishment of a multiplicity of unions, but no pressure of any kind was put by the Government on the workers to join any particular union.
