HC Deb 21 December 1973 vol 866 cc491-2W
Mr. Bishop

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what guid-

Exchequer on 17th December, indicating the main areas where such reductions will take place; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Peter Walker

My Department's share of the reductions in public expenditure in 1974–75 announced by the Chancellor on 17th December is as follows:—

ance he has given to industry regarding the days when work may be undertaken; and whether he proposes to permit Saturdays or Sundays to be days on which workers are required to work.

Mr. Emery

This guidance has been given in the Electricity (Industrial and Commercial Use) (Control) (No. 2) Order 1973 which was made today. The provisions of this order will be set out in full in the national Sunday Press.
