HC Deb 15 March 1968 vol 760 c394W
Mr. Biffen

asked the Minister of Labour if he has been notified of the agreement affecting revised rates and earnings of electricians at the British Motor Corporation Austin factory at Longbridge; and if he is now able to evaluate the percentage increase in rates and earnings provided for by this agreement.

Mr. Hattersley

My Department has been notified of an agreement affecting the day-workers at this factory, including electricians. The agreement provides for a change in the bonus arrangements which does not affect the basic rates but which will increase current earnings by an average of 4.8 per cent.
