asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity if she will make a statement on the work of the Commission on Industrial Relations to date; and what plans it has in hand for the next year.
§ Mrs. Castle
I have so far referred three cases to the C.I.R. Details were given in reply to a Question by my hon. Friend the Member for West Ham, North (Mr. Arthur Lewis) on 15th May. I have under consideration possible references involving general questions of industrial relations in particular industries and individual companies and complaints of non-recognition.—[Vol. 783, c. 255–6.]
§ 52. Mr. Kenneth Lewis
asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity whether the Commission on Industrial Relations has completed its examination, or made recommendations, in respect of visits to particular sections of British industry.
§ Mr. Harold Walker
Members and officers of the Commission are visiting the companies concerned in the three references at present before it. We expect these examinations to be completed and to receive the Commission's conclusions in the autumn. In addition, a number of industrial visits have been made to collect background information for the Commission's work.
