HC Deb 08 July 1952 vol 503 c76W
83. Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what has been the effect of the recent appeals to the workers to exercise restraint in making claims for increased wages.

Mr. R. A. Butler

The statement I made to the National Joint Advisory Council on 15th May was followed by a discussion between the Economic Committee of the T.U.C. and my right hon. and learned Friend the Minister of Labour and myself on 24th June. I have no further statement to make to the House about wage claims at present.
