HC Deb 17 May 1950 vol 475 c162W
92. Brigadier Clarke

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Admiralty if he will state the terms of the agreements made between his Department and the trades unions in connection with the dockyard merit awards.

Mr. W. Edwards

The agreement between the official and trade union sides of the Shipbuilding Trade Joint Council on the subject of the new scheme of merit pay for craftsmen in Admiralty establishments takes the form of a somewhat lengthy document, the scheme itself being explained by diagrams. I am, therefore, sending the hon. and gallant Member a copy.
