HC Deb 27 June 1957 vol 572 c49W
72. Mr. C. R. Hobson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is aware that Rodi & Weinenberger (Gt. Britain) Ltd., of 41, Barnsole Street, Gillingham, Kent, do not operate a guaranteed minimum wage, that there is no guaranteed piece-work percentage and that no decision affecting wages and conditions can be resolved without reference to the firm in Germany; and if he will therefore revoke the residence permits of those foreign nationals responsible for administering this firm.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I am informed by my right hon. Friend the Minister of Labour and National Service that the matters referred to in the first two parts of the Question are to be the subject of negotiations between the firm and the appropriate trade union. On the information available to me, there does not appear to be any ground for any action on my part.
