§ Sir W. Robson Brown
asked the Minister of Labour what consideration he has given to the instructions on strike action circulated by the Draughtsmen's and Allied Technician's Association, a copy of which has been sent to him; and if he will seek to hold discussions with this Association, in view of the attack which these instructions make on Her Majesty's Government's economic policy.
§ Mr. Gunter
I am informed that the document which the hon. Member sent to me was circulated by the Draghtsmen's and Allied Technicians' Association in 1963 as a result of a request for guidance, which the Association received from their members in 1961. In these circumstances, it is obvious that this document was not devised as an attack on the economic policy of the present Government. I do not intend to hold discussions with the Association.
