HC Deb 24 February 1972 vol 831 c359W
Q12. Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Prime Minister on how many occasions other than Friday and Saturday, 18th and 19th February, 1972, in the last 20 months he has personally intervened in attempted settlements of industrial disputes separately from and in addition to the Minister directly responsible for employment and labour problems.

The Prime Minister

On no other occasion have I participated personally in discussions with the parties to an industrial dispute. But industrial relations policy is regularly the subject of discussion by Ministers collectively.
