§ Mr. Mallalieu
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will make a statement on the dispute at Hopkinsons Limited, Brittania Works, Huddersfield.
§ Mr. Harold Walker
I understand that for some months there has been a pay dispute between the company and the Technical, Administrative and Supervisory Section of the Amalgamated Union of Engineering Workers (TASS) and that the union has employed sanctions in the form of a "go-slow", a ban on certain types of work and a refusal to co-operate with non-members. Some members have been suspended by management and others dismissed. The dispute is at present still within the procedure of the engineering industry. I hope it will soon be resolved.
