§ Mr. Mikardo
asked the Minister of Aviation what instructions he has given to the airways Corporations about their statutory obligation to consult organisations representing their workers on the wages and working conditions of those workers.
§ Mr. Roy Jenkins
The National Joint Council for Civil Air Transport provides the machinery envisaged in the Air Corporations Act, 1949, for discussion of matters of mutual interest to the Corporations and persons employed by them. The use of this machinery is well established and I see no occasion for any general direction on the matter.
