HC Deb 29 June 1950 vol 476 c245W
83. Sir J. Mellor

asked the Minister of Labour what were the terms of award No. 1426 of the National Arbitration Tribunal; what area is covered by this award; what areas are covered by similar awards; what is the statutory authority for this procedure; and how is it enforced.

Mr. Isaacs

I am sending to the hon. Member a copy of the award in question together with a copy of a similar award. These awards were given by the National Arbitration Tribunal under the powers conferred on it by the Conditions of Employment and National Arbitration Orders. As regards the last part of the Question, the award becomes an implied term of the contract between the employer and the workers to whom it applies and can be enforced by civil action.
