HC Deb 09 July 1956 vol 556 c7W
75. Mr. G. Brown

asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that the meeting between the British Motor Corporation and the trade union broke down on the refusal of the corporation to meet the proposal for compensation to the dismissed workers; and what steps he now proposes to take to facilitate a settlement of this dispute.

Mr. Iain Macleod

I am aware of the joint statement issued after the meeting. As regards the second part of the Question there is, as I said on 3rd July, agreed procedure within the engineering industry for dealing with differences.
