HC Deb 12 May 1966 vol 728 cc566-7
6. Mr. Edward M. Taylor

asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what representations he has received from trade unions and associated bodies on the Prices and Incomes Bill.

Mr. William Rodgers

Representations have been received from trade unions and trade union branches and the T.U.C. have raised a number of points which my right hon. Friend hopes to discuss with them very shortly.

Mr. Taylor

In the light of these and other representations, do the Government intend to pursue the Prices and Incomes Bill, and will the new Bill contain the old Clause 14 which laid down substantial fines for those who struck or advocated strikes?

Mr. Rodgers

We made it clear that we intended to reintroduce the Bill, but I cannot anticipate any details.
