HC Deb 13 March 1973 vol 852 c313W
42. Mr. Simon Mahon

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will seek to meet the Electrical and Plumbing Trades Union with a view to ending the electrical strike at the new Inland Revenue building in Bootle.

Mr. Chichester-Clark

This is an unofficial and unconstitutional dispute. Officials of my Department have had talks with representatives of the parties involved and in the course of these discussions I have met Mr. Chapple. The services of my Department continue to be available.
