HC Deb 09 August 1966 vol 733 cc313-4W
Q12. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Prime Minister to what extent the Government's declaration and publication of the White Paper on a wages, prices and incomes standstill, was requested by the United States Government; and whether discussions took place with the Trades Union Congress General Council before this White Paper was published.

The Prime Minister

No such request was made. My right hon. Friend the First Secretary and I had discussions with the Trades Union Congress Economic Committee before the White Paper was published.
