HC Deb 25 January 1982 vol 16 c248W
Mr. Arthur Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he will take steps to appoint an independent inquiry into the running dispute affecting the British Railways Board and the train drivers, on condition that all industrial action is withdrawn until such time as the inquiry reports.

Mr. Waddington

No. ACAS has made every effort, and continues to do so, to assist all the parties to resolve this dispute and end the damaging industrial action.
