HC Deb 28 January 1969 vol 776 c308W
Mr. Biffen

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity what has been the estimated increase in productivity of the boilermakers, shipwrights and blacksmiths employed in the Tyne Shipbuilding Consortium since the recent pay increase; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. Harold Walker

It is too early to evaluate the full effect of the agreement but we are keeping the position under review.
