HC Deb 28 January 1971 vol 810 cc173-4W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Employment when he expects to receive the report of the Wilberforce Committee of Inquiry into the power workers dispute; whether he will ask Lord Wilberforce why it took the tribunal an interval of several days after their appointment before they commenced their hearings; why they declined to take evidence from certain interested parties and those who could have assisted the tribunal; and whether he will ask them to publish this information in their report.

Mr. Bryan

Lord Wilberforce has said that the report should be ready early in February. It was the responsibility of the Court to determine how they should conduct their inquiries.
