CONTROL RELAXED

CONSTRUCTIONAL WORKS Parliamentary Reporter. WELLINGTON, this day. Award rates and conditions with slight modifications on certain jobs will apply as from to-day to all constructional works being carried out by the State as a result of the revocation of the Essential Building Works Labour Legislation Modification Order, 1943, which is contained in a Gazette notice published yesterday. This statement was made by the Minister of Works, Mr. Semple, when explaining the revocation. "The order was introduced to achieve stability in the building industry in relation to our defence construction programme," said Mr. Semple. "Now that the threat of invasion has receded from our shores and peacetime conditions have largely returned, the time is opportune to remove this particular control. It will be necessary to maintain some control over the manning of priority jobs and this will be done by the industrial manpower regulations." In making the decision to revoke this order, but maintaining a modified form of control, the Government is studying the best interests of -the country."
