§ 96. Mr. G. M. Thomson
asked the Minister of Labour what representations he has received from the National Union of Journalists concerning the abolition of the Industrial Disputes Order; and what reply he has made.
§ Mr. Iain Macleod
I have had a letter from the National Union of Journalists expressing concern at the ending of the Industrial Disputes Order. I have replied that on the question of "issues" I think there may be scope for further talks and that I have invited the parties represented on my National Joint Advisory Council to consider this aspect.
