HC Deb 11 November 1971 vol 825 c261W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister of State for Defence whether he will take action to introduce a system for British Servicemen and Servicewomen to join a public service trade union; and whether to this end he will seek information from the German Defence Ministry of their arrangements of this kind.

Lord Balniel

No. I am already aware of the arrangements under which members of the German armed forces are allowed to join public service trade unions.
