asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will state on what date he received the communication from Mr. W. J. Dennis, the secretary of the trade union side of the Joint Industrial Council at the Royal Mint; what was the nature of this communication; when he sent a reply; what was the reply; and whether he will publish these communications in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Mr. Higgins

Mr. Dennis is Chairman of the Trade Union Side of the Joint Industrial Council of the Royal Mint. My right hon. Friend received a letter from Mr. Dennis on the 13th July inviting him to receive another delegation of Royal Mint employees. A reply was sent on 26th July that he could see no useful purpose in doing so.
