§ 54. Captain W. Elliot
asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what progress has been made in consultations between the Government, the Trades Union Congress and individual trade unions on the trade union reforms outlined in "In Place of Strife"; and whether she will make a statement.
§ Mr. Harold Walker
My Department has begun detailed consultations with the T.U.C. about the implementation of some of the proposals in the White Paper, and hopes to do so about the others shortly. We have not had any consultations direct with individual trade unions; those affiliated to the T.U.C. will no doubt express their views through it.
