§ Mr. Norman Lamont
Subject to the usual caveats of trading performance and stock market conditions, we would hope that the company could move to the private sector in mid-1986.
§ Mr. Lamont
I am perfectly prepared to meet the trade unions. It is important that I should do so at an early date. As regards pensions, the Government have made their position on no detriment clear. There have been a series of meetings between my predecessor and the trade unions. I do not believe that there is much to be added on that subject.
