At the end of April the estimated number of people in Great Britain assisted by the special employment measures for which my Department and the Manpower Services Commission are responsible is as given below. It is not possible to give the breakdown by age group as requested.
§ Mr. Mayhew
Under current legislation it is possible for trade unions to make contracts and to sue or be sued in respect of such contracts. Collective agreements between unions and employers can be made legally enforceable if they are in writing and contain specific provision that the parties intend the agreements to have this effect.
