HC Deb 22 May 1969 vol 784 c107W
17. Mr. Waddington

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity whether she will introduce legislation to alter the definition of what constitutes a lawful trade dispute.

Mrs. Castle

I am considering whether the present definition of a trade dispute gives adequate protection to trade union activities but the Government do not intend, to enact a general definition of lawful trade disputes which would make disputes not covered by it unlawful.
