§ 39. Sir C. Osborne
asked the Minister of Labour if he is aware that 233 electricians employed by Vickers-Armstrongs at Barrow-in-Furness have been on unofficial strike for over a week over a demarcation dispute with the sheet metal workers; if he will seek to use his good offices to bring this dispute to an end; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Whitelaw
As my hon. Friend will know the men returned to work on 21st May and the T.U.C. arranged an arbitration hearing on 24th May when an award was made.
