§ 65. Mr. G. R. Strauss
asked the Minister of Transport whether he has now withdrawn or modified his request to the Chairman of the British Transport Commission to send the claims of the railways unions to arbitration instead of 62W their being first negotiated in the normal way.
§ Mr. Hay
No. As the right hon. Member knows, my right hon. Friend's request was considered by the British Transport Commission, who put it to the railway unions. The question of his withdrawing it does not therefore arise.
