HC Deb 24 February 1954 vol 524 c32W
64. Mr. Awbery

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how many major strikes have taken place in Singapore naval base since the war; if he will state the causes of the prevailing industrial unrest; and what steps are being taken by the Admiralty to establish a more amicable understanding with its employees at this base.

Mr. J. P. L. Thomas

The answer to the first part of the Question is two, one in 1946 and one in 1952. As to the second part, I do not accept the implication that there is industrial unrest in the naval base. On the third part, I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which I gave to him on 3rd February.
