HC Deb 27 February 1973 vol 851 cc313-4W
40. Mr. John Page

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will make a statement on the industrial situation in the gas industry.

Mr. Maurice Macmillan

I met the unions concerned on Friday to ensure that they understood our proposals for the Pay Board's inquiry into problems of relativities and anomalies. I explained that the board would be asked to look at particular problems of this kind in relation to each other and as part of a general picture, so that we can consider how progress can be made in dealing with them in stage 3.
