We on this side do not accept the Under-Secretary of State's view that it is impossible to distinguish between the genuine productivity agreement and one which is merely window-dressing. We agree that there is need to distinguish between them, but we think that it can be done. On that basis, we consider it most important that such agreements should not be deterred either by the provisions in Parts I, II and III or by the provisions in Part IV. If we do not incorporate Amendments of the kind we are now discussing, there will be grave danger that the whole climate in which this kind of improvement in industrial relations can ben made and brought up to date will be adversely affected.
