§ 40. Mr. Harold Walker
asked the Minister of Power if he will issue a general direction, in the public interest, to the boards of the nationalised industries for which he has responsibility, not to place contracts with firms which refuse to recognise or negotiate with trade unions.
§ Dr. Bray
No, but I understand that the nationalised fuel industries already include a "Fair Wages" Clause in all their major contracts, which deals with wages, conditions and trade unions. If my hon. Friend knows of particular cases of difficulty I am sure that the appropriate Chairmen will be pleased to hear from him.26W
§ 48. Mr. Varley
asked the Minister of Power if he will now give a general direction, in the public interest, to the nationalised fuel industries to coordinate their advertising.
