HC Deb 01 February 1960 vol 616 c81W
28. Mr. Gourlay

asked the Minister of Power if he is aware that trade union representatives requested a thirty- minute interview with the Parliamentary Secretary when he visited the Michael Colliery recently; and what were the reasons for refusing the request.

Mr. George

Yes. The mineworkers' representatives were invited to meet me but they stipulated a minimum of thirty minutes for discussion and, unfortunately, this could not be fitted into the programme.
