HC Deb 16 April 1986 vol 95 cc389-90W
Mr. Pike

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment when he next proposes to meet the trade unions to discuss conditions of employment and protection of pension rights of employees consequent on the privatisation of water authorities.

Mr. John Patten

I have no plans to meet the water industry trade unions to discuss these matters at present, though I met NALGO on 14 February at a seminar on privatising the water authorities, at which pensions were discussed.
