HC Deb 31 January 1963 vol 670 c212W
43. Mr. T. Fraser

asked the Minister of Power if he will make a statement about the effect on steel-making capacity and employment in the industry of the disposal of a number of companies by the Iron and Steel Holding and Realisation Agency to a consortium of privately-owned steel companies.

Mr. Wood

I have no reason to expect that the recent sale of three companies to Iron and Steel Investments Limited will affect the commercial basis on which the companies operate.
