HC Deb 08 July 1959 vol 608 cc135-6W
78. Mr. Osborne

asked the Minister of Labour what steps he will now take to end the caulkers' strike at Barrow-in-Furness, where men of the same union are quarrelling over a demarcation dispute which threatens to bring the whole shipyard to a standstill.

Mr. Iain Macleod

I understand that the men returned to work on 6th July and that the dispute which caused the strike is now being discussed between the union and the employer.
