HC Deb 13 April 1976 vol 909 c443W
7. Mr. Goodhart

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what plans he is making to harmonise the minimum holiday requirements for British workers with the practice in other countries which belong to the EEC.

Mr. John Fraser

The Government supported the EEC recommendation adopted last year for four weeks annual paid holiday by the end of 1978, on the basis that its progressive achievement was a matter for collective bargaining, subject to the requirements of counter-inflation policy.
