HC Deb 06 November 1968 vol 772 c99W
74. Mr. Lubbock

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will ask the Edwards Committee to investigate the changes in the British United Airways Group and in particular the notification by British United Island Airways to the British Air Line Pilots Association that it is not the intention of the new Company to enter into a collective agreement with the pilots concerned.

Mr. William Rodgers

As the hon. Gentleman knows, the Edwards Committee is already examining the whole structure of the British civil aviation industry. The differences between the British Airline Pilots Association and British United Island Airways are a separate question, which I am investigating, in conjunction with my right hon. Friend the First Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity.
