HC Deb 10 December 1992 vol 215 c790W
Ms. Quin

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment if she will place in the Library a copy of the research commissioned by her Department on the effect of the abolition of wages councils.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

There has been no recent research into the effects of abolition of wages councils. However, in the early 1980s the Department published research into six councils, five of which were abolished by Labour, and copies will be placed in the Library, as soon as this can be arranged.

Mr. Alex Carlile

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what representations she has received from people in Wales regarding the abolition of wages councils; and if she will make a statement.

Mr. Michael Forsyth

There is no separate information available about representations received from people in different parts of Great Britain.
