§ 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.
