§ Mr. HAMMERSLEY
asked the Minister of Labour if he will consider the introduction of legislation to make compulsory the implementing of the recent agreements in the cotton-weaving industry?1915W
§ Sir H. BETTERTON
It would be greatly to be regretted if the responsible organisations in the industry found themselves unable to prevent breaches of agreements so recently made, and I should like to take this opportunity of asking all engaged in the industry to take their part in safeguarding it from a repetition of the loss and disturbance which it has experienced during the last few years. I have been giving careful consideration to representations which have been made to me in the matter, and I propose to set some inquiries on foot in order to inform myself of the facts.
