§ Mr. David Young
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will raise with the Confederation of British Industry, pursuant to his declaration in the treatment of public employees who propose to take part in the Olympic Games, Official Report, 17 March, c. 155–56, the position of employees of private industry who propose to participate in the Games.
§ Mr. Monro
It would not be appropriate for the Government to raise this matter with the CBI. We naturally hope that all United Kingdom citizens, including employees of private industry, will heed our continuing advice against going to the summer Olympic Games in the Soviet Union in the present circumstances. But it is for private employers themselves to decide what advice they give their own employees.
