Mr. John Davies

My right hon. and hon. Friends and I have extended invitations to the Trades Union Congress, the Scottish Trades Union Congress and unions to meet us on many occasions, for both general and particular discussions. Amongst others, we have had useful discussions with the Transport and General Workers Union, the Amalgamated Union of Engineering Workers, the Electrical Electronic and Telecommunications Union—Plumbing Trades Union and the Confederation of Shipbuilding and Engineering Unions.
