HC Deb 18 October 1968 vol 770 c182W
Mr. Scott

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what consultations she has had with the retail trade concerning the implementation of equal pay; and what plans she has for further consultations in the near future.

Mr. Harold Walker

My officials are already in contact with the Retail Alliance and the Retail Consortium about enquiries we are making, in collaboration with the C.B.I, and the T.U.C., into the cost of equal pay in different parts of industry. We shall be having further consultations after studying the results of these enquiries.
