Re-elected for another year, Albert Bullen, of the lacemaking department, is pleased to be back on the M.A.C. He cuts fabric binding for shoes and this is his fourth year of service with British Bata.

“A body such as the M.A.C. is typical of the British way of hearing both sides,” he said. “It is essentially a democratic organisation, and does a great deal of good, especially when, as is invariably the case, the workers feel that matters they raise will receive full and fair consideration, even if, as, of course they cannot be, they are not always acceptable.

“All the employees should take and interest in the M.A.C. and I should like to see a few more candidates come forward at elections, not because existing members are incapable, but because it will show a healthy interest.
