HC Deb 05 December 1972 vol 847 c367W
Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will seek powers to relax the wages freeze to an amount commensurate with the sum disclosed in the retail price index since 1st October, 1972.

Mr. Chichester-Clark

No. This would not be consistent with the standstill arrangements described in Cmnd. 5125.
