§ Q9. Mr. John D. Grant
asked the Prime Minister which Minister is responsible for wages and prices policy.
§ The Prime Minister
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity has general responsibility in consultation with the other Ministers concerned.
§ Mr. Grant
Since, as far as I could hear, the Prime Minister appears to suggest that he has actually got a policy in relation to these matters, may I ask whether he is aware that his views are causing great concern to employees in 757 the public sector who feel that on wages they will be unfairly discriminated against whereas on prices he has yet to take any steps at all towards proving that he will not rat on his election promises?
