§ 73. Mr. J. Silverman
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what qualifications and knowledge of labour conditions and what actual experience of trade union activity is required of a person appointed to the post of Labour Attaché to one of His Majesty's Missions abroad; and whether he has considered the appointment of active trades unionists who have held office in British trades unions to some of these positions.
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given him by my hon. Friend the Parliamentary Under-Secretary on 11 August, 1947; my right hon. Friend is well satisfied with the work of these Labour Attachés, and is not considering appointing others in their place.
