§ Mr. Maurice Macmillan
asked the Secretary of State for Employment whether he has details of settlements reached by the following nationalised industries (a) British Steel, (b) British Aerospace, (c) British Shipbuilders, (d) the National Freight Corporation, (e) British Railways, (f) British Gas, (g) the Central Electricity Generating Board, and (h) the National Coal Board; and whether he has details of the size of any productivity elements within any of these pay settlements, and the size of any increase in productivity achieved so far by groups of workers covered by such productivity elements.
§ Mr. Harold Walker
I have details of each pay settlement reached by the nationalised industries during the present pay round. It is too soon to assess the increase in productivity which has occurred as a result of productivity schemes which have been introduced in these industries during phase 3.
