HC Deb 10 June 1971 vol 818 c359W
41. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Employment why, in view of the Government's policy of wage and salary restraint, he appointed Mr. Len Neal as Chairman of the Commission for Industrial Relations at a salary of £15,000 per annum, as against the £11,500 per annum paid to the present holder of this position.

Mr. Dudley Smith

Because the functions and responsibilities of the Commission are being substantially increased under the Industrial Relations Bill.
