§ 23. Mr. David Mitchell
asked the Minister of Labour what progress he is making in securing the elimination of restrictive labour practices in industry.
§ Mr. Gunter
In a wide range of industries progress has been made and will be further stimulated by action following the National Productivity Conference. I am giving every encouragement to management and trade unions to identify and eliminate such practices as an essential element in the drive for greater productivity. At plant level, my Industrial Relations Officers continue to give advice on this and other problems.
