TUC meeting with Minister of Labour, 1961

In November 1961, the TUC Economic Committee met with John Hare, Minister for Labour in Harold Macmillan's Conservative Government, to discuss equal pay. The TUC asked the government to ratify ILO Convention 100 on equal pay, which they accepted would require UK legislation. The Minister argued that this would be an interference in free and voluntary collective bargaining. Some years earlier, the TUC had also been opposed to legislation enforcing equal pay.
