HC Deb 23 July 1957 vol 574 c36W
89. Mr. Frank Allaun

asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies in which of the British Caribbean territories statutory minimum wage rates have been established; the amounts of such rates in each case; and in which territories trade unions freely exist in all industries and have been established.

Mr. Profumo

I am obtaining the information asked for in the first part of the Question and will write to the hon. Member when it is available. As regards the last part, industrial or general unions operate in all the principal industries in the Caribbean area. The hon. Member can find details in the list of Colonial Trade Unions which is in the Library.
