HC Deb 30 November 1972 vol 847 c238W
Mr. Spearing

asked the Prime Minister what steps were taken during the period of the Chequers talks to co-ordinate the actions of Ministers engaged in negotiations arising from wage or salary arbitrations; and which Ministers were currently so engaged.

The Prime Minister

There are longstanding arrangements for co-ordination between all those Ministers who have responsibilities in the field of pay negotiations, and these were in operation during the tripartite talks.
