§ 47. Mr. Nicholas Brown

§ Mr. Trippier
I have not received a copy of the report to which the hon. Member refers; but have subsequently seen the report. I note that its recommendations are addressed to trade unions and local authorities. The hon. Member cannot expect me to agree with much of the report's content and in particular the comments on Government policies.
