§ 61. Mr. Peyton
asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity in drawing up the Government's economic planning document, what consideration was given to introducing further legislation on prices and incomes.
§ Mr. Harold Walker
The Green Paper "The Task Ahead" says that the Government hope there will be no necessity for a renewal of the statutory powers which expire at the end of 1969, although a final decision on this can only be taken in the light of the economic situation at the time and taking into account in particular whether durable progress has been made with the balance of payments.
§ Mr. Hordern
asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity to what extent the Government's economic policy is based on restraint on incomes and prices until 1972.
