HC Deb 28 July 1975 vol 896 cc401-2W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment whether he will introduce legislation to prevent increases to top paid local government officers during the period of the present economic crisis, in view of current proposals to increase these salaries by up to £4,000 per annum.

Mr. John Silkin

The limitations in the White Paper "The Attack on Inflation" apply to wages and salaries in local government as in other fields.
