§ 27. Mr. Madel
asked the Secretary of State for Employment on how many occasions his Department has referred back phase 3 productivity deals to wage and salary negotiators; on how many occasions the same productivity deals were then renegotiated to the satisfaction of his Department; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Harold Walker
My Department has given advice to firms' negotiators on many occasions about proposed or concluded productivity deals, and often this advice has led to proposals being modified or concluded schemes being renegotiated. But detailed information on the number of such occasions is not readily available.
