§ 75. Mr. Alfred Morris
asked the Postmaster-General what machinery exists for establishing informal contact between Post Office Ministers and the leaders of the Staff Side; and on how many occasions during the last 10 years these informal meetings have taken place, including the number of meetings held in the first six months of 1965.
§ Mr. Benn
My hon. Friend and I have periodic meetings with Post Office Staff Side leaders at which matters of current mutual interest are discussed confidentially in an informal atmosphere. There have been two such meetings in the first six months of this year. I cannot answer for the actions of my predecessors in this respect.
