HC Deb 16 November 1970 vol 806 c325W
Mr. Darling

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry (1) whether he will extend his study of controls on exports of steelworks scrap to include an examination of the price-fixing arrangements between steel producers and scrap suppliers in the home market;

(2) when he expects to complete his study of the controls on exports of steelworks scrap; and whether, in the course of his study, he has consulted, or intends to consult, the British Scrap Federation.

Sir J. Eden

As part of my review of the Government's relations with industry, I am studying the operation of these controls. I will be consulting interested parties but I cannot at present say when the study will be completed.
