HC Deb 09 February 1973 vol 850 cc204-5W
Mr. Ewing

asked the Secretary of State for Employment when he expects to be able to reply to the letter from the hon. Member for Stirling and Falkirk Burghs sent to him on 16th November 1972 with a reminder on 19th January 1973 concerning the implementation of a wage increase for dock workers at Grangemouth which was negotiated before the Government anti-inflation measures were announced.

Mr. Chichester-Clark

My Department wrote to the hon. Member on 6th February explaining that a careful search of the Department's records had revealed no evidence that the hon. Member's letter of 16th November had been received by the Secretary of State.
