HC Deb 06 February 1984 vol 53 cc475-6W
Mr. Leighton

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether military personnel in the Army's printing survey service are allowed to join a trade union.

Mr. Lee

Under an agreement with the NGA, Army personnel employed as survey print technicians in the directorate of military survey may apply for union membership in preparation for their return to civilian employment, but must assume no obligation beyond the regular payment of their subscription.
