asked the Minister of Labour whether he has given consideration to the resolution of the Yeading Lane branch of the Amalgamated Engineering Union, forwarded to him by the hon. Member for West Fife; and what steps he proposes to take to implement their demand for a stronger application of the Essential Work Order in the case of employers refusing to reinstate dismissed workers when directed to do so by the National Service officer?
Yes, Sir. The resolution arose out of the case with which I dealt in my reply to the hon. Member for West-houghton (Mr. Rhys Davies) on 1st December, to which I would refer my hon. Friend.
