HC Deb 28 January 1971 vol 810 cc157-8W
26. Mr. John D. Grant

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what representations he has received from the national staff side of the Civil Service Whitley Council concerning the Industrial Relations Bill; and what replies he has sent.

Mr. David Howell

My right hon. Friend has not received direct representations from the Staff Side of the Civil Service National Whitley Council, but its views on the Industrial Relations Bill have been made known to the Government in a letter of 3rd November last from its Secretary General to the Head of the Civil Service. Discussions are continuing within the Whitley machinery.
