§ Mr. Mason
My right hon. Friend has informed the T.U.C. that he would be reluctant to embark on a fresh consideration of a third booking force until he has received the Monopolies Commission's report. He also said that the Board of Trade was at present engaged in considering the future rôle of the N.F.F.C. and that he would bear in mind the T.U.C.'s proposal that its activities should be extended.
