§ Mrs. Castle:
The Government welcome the T.U.C.'s vigorous efforts, in co-operation with the unions concerned, to give effect to the policies of positive intervention in serious unconstitutional and inter-union disputes which were the basis of the undertaking given by the T.U.C. last June. I am confident that these efforts have averted and curtailed many strikes.
