HC Deb 18 November 1970 vol 806 c430W
Mr. Leadbitter

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what conditions he has laid down to both sides of industry regarding the use of the conciliation machinery of his Department; and in what circumstances he is prepared to withhold this device in a dispute.

Mr. Bryan

The power to offer conciliation is discretionary. Each request for conciliation will, as previously, be considered in the light of all the factors involved. No general criteria have been laid down.
