§ 48 and 49. Mr. Crouch
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer (1) what steps he plans to take to improve the liaison between the Boards of the nationalised industries and the Government;
(2) what changes he plans to make in the machinery of consultation to ensure that recommendations to Ministers from the Boards of the nationalised industries on matters affecting their commercial performance are considered and decided upon more speedily in future.
§ Mr. Diamond
I would ask the hon. Member to await the Government's reply to the recent report of the Select Committee on Nationalised Industries.
