§ Mr. Kilroy-Silk
asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food if he will provide a full list of the discretionary powers which he possesses.
§ Mr. John Silkin
I assume that my hon. Friend is refering to discretionary powers available to the Government in pursuance of their pay policy. I accordingly refer him to the reply given by my right hon. Friend the Chief Secretary to the Treasury to the hon. Member for Kingston upon Thames (Mr. Lamont) on 24th November 1977—[Vol. 939, c.854.]
