The elaitn of the A.S.E. to be consulted separately by the Government on the revision of schedule of protected occupations has: brought about an awkward situation, as' the Government cnntend that they have ii-vl with other trade unions not to admit separate consultations. A large number of industrial, organisations have passed resolutions depre-j eating the A.S.E's threateni^j atti- tude to down tools unless they san have their way, and the sit- uation has been complicated by Mr. Hen- derson's support of the claim of the engineers. A ballot is being taken of A.S.E members as to whether they shall accept the Govern- ment's new Man-Power proposals or not. Over the week-end public opinion showed a good deal of impatience at the failure to find a way out of the embroglio.
