§ 22. Mr. Lawson
asked the Secretary of State for Employment what is his latest estimate of the proportion of trade unionists whose wage settlements since 10th October 1974 have been in excess of the guidelines laid down in the social contract.
§ 36. Mr. Henderson
asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he is satisfied with the present operation of the social contract as it affects wage settlements in Scotland.
§ Mr. Foot:
A great deal of progress has been made on both the Government's side and the trade unions' side in implementing the social contract in Scotland and elsewhere. But firmer adherence to the spirit of the TUC guidelines is vital to reducing the danger of higher unemployment and keeping down inflation.
