§ Mr. John Evans
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will seek to ascertain the trades unions which elect, or re-elect, any or all of their full-time paid officials; and if he will find out the voting method used by each union.
§ Mr. Mayhew
A complete answer to this question could only be provided at disproportionate cost. However, of the 26 trade unions which have a membership in excess of 100,000, 15 use various forms of electoral procedure in order to elect some or all of their full-time officials.
