HC Deb 12 August 1966 vol 733 c477W
Mr. O'Malley

asked the Minister of Power if he will make a statement on the progress towards the nationalisation of the steel industry.

Mr. Marsh

As my right hon. Friend the Leader of the House said on Wednesday, it is intended to start the Committee stage of the Iron and Steel Bill soon after the House returns from the Recess. Before then I intend to set up the Organising Committee which will prepare for the establishment of the National Steel Corporation and begin work on the review of the organisation of the industry, on which it will be the Corporation's duty to make a report to me.
