asked the Prime Minister whether he is now in a position to define the Government's wages and salaries policy; and which Minister is responsible for it?
The policy of the Government with regard to wage levels and prices remains as stated in the White Paper of July, 1941. Many Departments of State are concerned.
Can the right hon. Gentleman say when we shall see any evidence of its application?
If the hon. and gallant Gentleman wants evidence, he had better look around for it.
Does not the White Paper represent the complete abnegation of the Government in the matter of a wages policy since it washes its hands of responsibility and leaves wages to be settled within each industry?
