Mr. Kenneth Baker


Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Minister for the Civil Service why he will not invoke the Industrial Relations Act to deal with the industrial dispute affecting the civil servants.

Mr. Kenneth Baker

Circumstances have not so far arisen in which I consider it would have been appropriate to invoke the Industrial Relations Act.
