asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether the Government have completed the further consideration of the fair wages resolution promised when schedule 11 to the Employment Protection Act 1975 was repealed.
I have written to interested parties indicating that the Government have it in mind to ask the House to set aside the fair wages resolution, and inviting comments. I am also consulting bodies most representative of employers and workers on the related question of denouncing International Labour Convention No. 94 concerning labour clauses in public contracts. I have asked for comments by the end of June 1982 and will then report to the House again.
