HC Deb 15 November 1977 vol 939 cc180-1W
30. Mr. Madel

asked the Secretary of State for Employment how many wage negotiators seeking phase 3 agreements have enlisted the help of the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service.

Mr. Harold Walker

I have been informed by ACAS that, during the period 1st August to 31st October 1977, 169 requests were received for conciliation in general pay disputes. The Service does not separately identify those requests which might be described as arising from phase 3 negotiations.
