HC Deb 21 March 1979 vol 964 c631W
Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will issue a directive to the Post Office to require it not to enter into any long-term commitment towards its employees which would conflict with the constitutional entitlement of a future Government to rescind the Post Office statutory monopoly.

Mr. Les Huckfield

Negotiations on conditions of employment are a matter for the Post Office.
