HC Deb 22 February 1962 vol 654 c73W
67. Mr. A. Lewis

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, in view of the Government's wage pause, and the increase of 1.7 per cent in retail prices since July, 1961, why he will not agree to introduce legislation preventing directors from increasing their salaries and fees during a period to be determined by him.

Sir E. Boyle

I do not believe that a statutory "freezing" either of incomes generally or of particular types of income would be workable or sensible.
