HC Deb 01 July 1981 vol 7 cc388-9W
Mr. Latham

asked the Prime Minister whether she will list the occasions and dates since 9 January 1980 when she has met official representatives of the Trades Union Congress at a formal meeting to discuss policy issues, excluding meetings with Civil Service unions to discuss Whitley conditions; and whether there has been any occasion when she has refused to meet a Trades Union Congress deputation after the congress had officially requested one.

The Prime Minister

I met the Trades Union Congress General Council on 14 October 1980, and I chaired the National Economic Development Council on 4 February 1981. I have not received any other official request from the congress for a meeting with a TUC deputation in this period.
