HC Deb 24 April 1975 vol 890 c379W
Mr. Banks

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he will publish the number and details of wage settlements made in the nationalised sector that fall outside the social contract.

Mr. Booth

No. As my right hon. Friend and I have told the House, it is not necessary or appropriate for us to classify each individual settlement in relation to the TUC guidelines.

Sir Frederic Bennett

asked the Secretary of State for Employment when the hon. Member for Torbay can expect a reply to a letter addressed to his Department, dated 19th March 1975. on the subject of statistical information on the observation of the social contract in the public sector.

Mr. Booth

I replied to the hon. Member's letter on 27th March. A further copy was sent to him on 23rd April, as I understand that he did not receive my original reply.
