§ Mr. Simon Mahon
asked the Minister of Labour what action he is taking to establish registration of men employed in the building and civil engineering industry with a view to eventual decasualisation in this important industry.
§ Mr. Gunter
This is primarily a matter for the industry itself but I hope that the Redundancy Payments Bill, which is designed to encourage the negotiation of agreed schemes in industries where there is casual employment will lead to arrangements which will provide more regular employment. I intend to seek discussions with both sides of this industry before the Bill comes into force.
