HC Deb 08 December 1955 vol 547 cc84-5W
47. Mr. Grimond

asked the Prime Minister what proposals he has to give effect to the policy of Her Majesty's Government that profits should be more widely shared.

The Prime Minister

The Government welcome the development of schemes of co-partnership and profit sharing, and are glad to see the increasing interest in them. The adoption of such schemes is essentially a matter for industry, because the Government believe that they should not be imposed from without, but adopted with the willing co-operation of all concerned.

My right hon. and learned Friend the Minister of Labour and National Service is collecting and analysing information on the subject which will be published when it is available
