HC Deb 24 May 1976 vol 912 cc89-90W
Mr. Taylor

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if the Government will refrain from introducing any further Bills requiring State enterprises or public corporations to promote industrial democracy until such times as he or other Ministers take steps to define industrial democracy; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Denzil Davies

The Government are committed to carrying through as soon as possible a programme for the radical extension of industrial democracy in both the private and public sectors. Measures to implement this programme at board level will be formulated following the report of Lord Bullock's Committee of Inquiry on the private sector and the conclusion of the Government's own studies in the public sector. Legislation will then be placed before Parliament.
