§ 7. Mr. Madden
asked the Secretary of State for Employment when he intends to meet chairmen of wages councils.
§ Mr. Madden
Will the Minister confirm that wages councils set the basic 191 rate for many thousands of low-paid workers in the private sector? Will be give a clear assurance that he will not call in or otherwise seek to delay any awards made by wages councils substantially in excess of current incomes policy guidelines?
