HC Deb 13 November 1967 vol 754 c3W
26. Mr. Rose

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will now instruct his special investigator to open an inquiry into the dispute at the Roberts-Arundel factory, Stockport.

Mr. Gunter

There have been exchanges between the company and the unions and progress has been made. The major outstanding issue is I understand the rate at which the company feels able to take back the men on strike. In the circumstances, an inquiry into the dispute would not in my view help towards a settlement. I am keeping in touch with developments.
