HC Deb 18 October 1994 vol 248 c198W
25. Mr. Dunn

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what was the nature and level of representations he has received from opposition parties on the implications of a minimum wage policy; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Oppenheim

The Government are well aware that if the policies of the opposition parties on minimum wages were ever implemented they would destroy many thousands of jobs.
