HC Deb 06 December 1968 vol 774 c576W
Mr. Bidwell

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity if she will take steps to intervene in the building site official dispute, amounting to a lock-out, at a council housing scheme at Turriff, Ivy Bridge, Hounslow; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. Hattersley

I understand that the dispute is being dealt with through the disputes machinery of the National Joint Council for the Building Industry, and that joint talks are being held with a view to re-opening the site. In the circumstances it would not be appropriate for me to intervene.
