§ Mr. John Page
asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many industrial tribunal members representing trade unions, who were first appointed before 1972 and who continued to serve between 1972 and 1974, were not reappointed from February 1974 onwards to the latest date for which figures are available; and what were the reasons for the changes made.
§ Mr. Booth
Of those members who were appointed before 1972, after consultation with the Trades Union Congress, 31 were not appointed for a further term when their appointments expired in October 1974. There were a number of reasons for these changes but the reason in the majority of cases was that the names of those concerned were not put forward by the TUC for consideration for appointment.
