§ 66. Mr. Longden
asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs whether he will make a further statement about the discussions which he is having with the joint man power committee of the printing industry.
§ Mr. Albu
I understand that a proposal has now been made that the terms of reference of the Joint Manpower Committee, under an independent chairman, should be extended to cover all the recommendations made in the report of the National Board for Prices and Incomes. This has been referred to the member unions of the Printing and Kindred Trades Federation for immediate consideration. If they approve, as we hope they will, I understand it is probable that the British Federation of Master Printers and the Newspaper Society will concur.
