Motion text

That this House welcomes the support given by the honourable Member for Rossendale and Darwen to the ambulance men in their current dispute; notes that he has indicated in a letter to the Secretary of State for Health that he can see the logic of the ambulancemen's demands and asking him to take another look; regrets that the honourable Member supported the Government in the division in the debate on 9th November; and hopes that he will now further consider his position and logically press the Secretary of State for Health to refer the position to arbitration and achieve an immediate acceptable solution to this dispute in which the ambulancemen have such overwhelming public support and a fully justified case,
