HC Deb 28 July 1981 vol 9 c403W
17. Mr. Jessel

asked the Secretary of State for Employment if he has studied the extent to which employment opportunities in particular cities are affected by the state of industrial relations there.

Mr. Waddington

The state of industrial relations in a city is bound to be an important factor in safeguarding employment and creating new jobs. However, there is no adequate statistical evidence on this subject.
