asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what official conferences he has had during the past eight weeks with the Trades Union Congress on wages policy; and if he will make a statement.
Presumably the hon. Member is referring to the statement made by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer during the debate on defence on 13th September last. This matter is under consideration by His Majesty's Ministers, but my right hon. Friend is not in a position to make a statement, nor has he had any conference with the Trades Union Congress.
