HC Deb 28 March 1962 vol 656 c118W
53. Mr. Swingler

asked the Minister of Labour why his Department granted permission to foreign artistes to appear on independent television when British artistes are on strike; and if he will give an assurance that he will refrain from such action, pending a solution of the present dispute.

Mr. Hare

The only permits issued have been for foreign variety artistes or variety acts who are outside the field of the dispute.
