HC Deb 30 November 1948 vol 458 c169W
Sir W. Smithers

asked the Secretary of State for War if he will set up an independent tribunal with a judge or leading K.C. as chairman before which evidence can be taken on oath to inquire into and to report to this House on the whole system of piece-work rates and time rates and expert supervision in Army workshops.

Mr. Shinwell

I know of no reason for thinking that any useful purpose would be served by such an inquiry.
