HC Deb 03 July 1980 vol 987 c645W
Q6. Mr. Renton

asked the Prime Minister whether she plans to discuss with leaders of the Trades Union Congress the need for wages in the next 12 months to rise more slowly than prices in order to create employment.

The Prime Minister

My hon. Friend is absolutely right to emphasise the effect the rate of pay increases will have on the number of jobs in this country. We have made the same point to trade union leaders in the NEDC and elsewhere, and we shall continue to do so.

Q19. Mr. Cryer

asked the Prime Minister when she expects next to meet the Trades Union Congress.

Q37. Mr. Norman Atkinson

asked the Prime Minister when next she will meet the leaders of Trades Union Congress.

The Prime Minister

I meet representatives of the TUC at NEDC and on other occasions. Further meetings will be arranged as necessary.
