HC Deb 16 November 1970 vol 806 c329W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if, in view of the Government's decision to increase the salaries of certain civil servants by 43 per cent., he will give the reasons why he will not give a general direction to the National Coal Board to increase miners' pay by 43 per cent. on condition that they call off their unofficial strike.

Sir J. Eden
