§ 17. Mr. BANFIELD
asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware that, owing to the prevailing dissatisfaction in the Ministry of Health regarding the treatment of ex-Service S-class clerks, the functioning of Whitley machinery in that Department has been suspended; and whether he will place the conciliatory machinery of his Department at the disposal of the official and staff sides of the Ministry of Health in order to resolve the existing difficulties?
§ Mr. E. BROWN
I am aware of the circumstances referred to, but see no reason to intervene in a matter arising in connection with the promotion procedure of another Government Department.
§ Mr. BANFIELD
Is the Minister not aware that his conciliation department might very well be used in this matter?
