HC Deb 07 November 1974 vol 880 c210W
Mr. Tebbit

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he has compiled a list of the major wage settlements since the inception of the social contract; and if he has assessed which of those settlements are within and which are outside the provisions of the latter.

Mr. Foot

Reasonably full information about major wage settlements normally become available to my Department, but it is neither necessary nor appropriate that I should attempt to adjudicate on every one of these.
