asked the Minister of Labour what steps he proposes to take over the ultimatum which is being given to some trawler owners that crews will not be allowed to sail unless all join a trade union.

I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply I gave him yesterday.

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the Secretary of the Fleetwood branch of the Transport and General Workers Union has issued such an ultimatum to local trawler owners, and would he like me to give him the information I have?

I am not so aware, and I would be very grateful if the hon. and gallant Gentleman would give me the information.
