Mr. Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer on what date he received representations from the Trades Union Congress General Council concerning proposals for his Budget; what was the nature of these discussions; and whether he will make a statement.

I received written representations on Wednesday, 23rd February, but have had no discussions with the General Council. The hon. Member will understand that I cannot anticipate my Budget statement.
