§ Mr. Arthur Lewis
asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs to what extent the Government's policy on wages, prices and incomes applies to persons with many sources of income; whether the 3½ per cent. limitation should be applied to each of these incomes or to the total received; how this policy applies to those in receipt of payments for part-time work and expense payments; and on what basis such a policy is to be enforced.
§ Mr. William Rodgers
We regard the general policy considerations set out in the White Paper on Prices and Incomes Policy (Cmnd. 2639) as applying in principle as much to people whose income derives from two or more sources as to anyone else. The application of the policy to particular cases will necessarily depend upon the circumstances.
