HC Deb 22 December 1983 vol 51 c360W
14. Ms. Clare Short

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what is the Government's policy on wage levels.

Mr. Moore

It is for employers and employees, not the Government, except in so far as they are an employer, to determine pay levels. Pay increases that are not justified by genuine productivity gains will tend to reduce employment.

16. Mr. Allan Roberts

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what evidence there is of misuse of tax relief for mortgage interest to finance loans to buy other goods.

Mr. Ian Stewart

There is no evidence that mortgage interest relief is being given on any significant scale for loans which do not meet the statutory conditions for relief.
