§ Q8. Mr. Bidwell
asked the Prime Minister if he will discuss with the CBI and the TUC the apportionment of married male workers' wages increases to themselves and their wives.
§ The Prime Minister
I recognise the importance of this in the context of the counter-inflation programme. I do not think that it is a matter on which the Government can properly intervene but I would naturally be willing to discuss any views which the CBI and the TUC may have on it.
