HC Deb 27 May 1952 vol 501 cc131-2W
58. Mr. Osborne

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what assurances he has been given by the Trades Union Congress leaders on the policy of wage restraint after his special meeting with the National Joint Advisory Council; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. R. A. Butler

I did not seek assurances from either side of industry. I invited the Council to consider in whatever way they thought suitable the statement I made to them on our present economic problems and I am awaiting their observations.
