§ Mr. D. SOMERVILLE
asked the Minister of Labour whether, in view of the benefit, both to employers and employed, he will use the best offices of his Ministry to press on all those trade unions, in which at present the custom does not obtain, the desirability of considering the re-introduction of the piece-work system?
§ Sir M. BARLOW
As stated in the reply given to the hon. Member on the 11th December, the question whether a piecework system should be introduced into any industry is a matter for discussion between the employers and workers concerned. I do not think that I could properly suggest, either to employers or to workers, the system on which the work in any industry should be carried out.
