§ 39. Colonel WOODCOCK
asked the Minister of Health whether his attention has been drawn to the resolution of the Tottenham and Wood Green Joint Drainage Committee compelling all its employés to be members of their respective trade unions; and if he proposes to take any steps to counteract pressure of this description?
§ Sir K. WOOD
My right hon. Friend has not received any official representations on this matter, and he is communicating with the committee.
§ Colonel WOODCOCK
Is it possible in a case where the majority of a council protest against such a resolution being carried out, to get an injunction in the High Court to prevent it being carried out?
Sir F. HALL
If, after communication with the committee to which the hon. Gentleman has referred, he finds the facts are as stated in the question, will steps be taken to see that those men who do not belong to the unions are not precluded from work?
§ Major MALONE
Is the hon. Gentleman not aware that the Tottenham Council rescinded that objectionable resolution last week?
