Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will seek a meeting with the General Secretary of the Union of Post Office Workers to discuss with him calling off the Post Office workers' strike on condition that an independent arbitration tribunal examine the dispute on condition that the persons appointed to the tribunal shall be agreed to by the parties to the dispute, and not be limited in their recommendations to the Government's 10 per cent. norm.

Mr. Bryan

The Union of Post Office Workers have made it clear that they are not prepared to go to arbitration in this dispute.
