asked the Minister of Labour whether he is aware of a dispute arising from the unwillingness of the Lord Chancellor's Department to pay to county court bailiffs the allowances for the use of their private motor cars prescribed in an agreement reached with the Civil Service National Whitley Council, and their unwillingness to agree to the matter in dispute being referred to the Civil Service Arbitration Tribunal in accordance with the arbitration agreement prevailing in the Civil Service; and whether he will agree to the request that the issue be referred to the National Arbitration Tribunal?

My right hon. Friend is aware of this difficulty. I understand that the matter in question is open to negotiation by the recognised association of which the officers concerned are members and that, failing agreement by negotiation, the normal arrangements for arbitration in the Civil Service will be available.
