HC Deb 08 February 1951 vol 483 c226W
68. Mr. Osborne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he has any statement to make on his conversations this week with the Trades Union Congress on a national wages policy.

Mr. Jay

No. The meeting to which the hon. Member refers was one of the normal meetings which my right hon. Friends the Chancellor and the Minister of Labour have with the T.U.C. from time to time. The discussions were concerned with the general economic situation and the problems of preventing inflation and will no doubt be continued at the next meeting.
