HC Deb 08 November 1983 vol 48 c125W
19. Mr. David Atkinson

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what representations he has received concerning the recent wage award of the licensed residential establishment and licensed restaurant wages council.

Mr. Alan Clark

We have received a number of letters from hon. Members and others about the level of the recent award by this council. The most common representation concerned the effect of the settlement on businesses and jobs, especially for young people.
