In a time like the present, when the differences between
Capital and Labour appear to be more than ordinarily
acute, it seems opportune to invite the attention of this
Society to those Acts of Parliament, some of which
have now been in force for some ten years, which seem
to suggest the possibility of one method of drawing closer
together those whose interest in an industry is that of an
employer and those whose interest is that of a worker. So
far as I am aware, this Society has up to the present not
had under its consideration the Trade Boards Act, 1909
(9 Edwd. VII., Ch. 22), the Trade Boards Provisional
Orders Confirmation Act, 1913 (3 & 4 Geo. V., Ch. 67).
or the Trade Boards Act, 1918 (8 & 9 George: V., Ch. 32),
which constitute a code of legislation designed to obviate
trade disputes in respect of wages by setting up Boards
consisting partly of representatives of employers and partly
of representatives of workers, together with certain independent
persons appointed by the Ministry of Labour, who
are empowered to fix minimum wages for all persons
employed in the various trades to which the Acts apply.
