§ 80. Mr. Roy Hughes
asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list the trade unions with membership in local government that he proposes to consult before appointing a Staffing Commission for Wales under the terms of the Local Government Bill.
§ Mr. Peter Thomas
I am sending the hon. Member two lists of bodies whom I have already consulted about the transfer of staff, compensation arrangements and other matters. The first is of bodies affiliated with the T.U.C. Consultations with them have been channelled through the T.U.C.s National Advisory Committee. The second is of bodies not affiliated to the T.U.C. I shall be considering at a later stage the arrangements for consultation in respect of the appointment of a Staff Commission.
