57. Mr. Milne

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what discussions have taken place between his Department and the Trades Union Congress about trade union membership in the armed forces; and if he will make a statement.

Discussions with the T.U.C. took place in October, 1967 with the object of ensuring as a resettlement measure that all relevant Army trades had been considered for recognition by the appropriate craft union.
