§ 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.
