HC Deb 07 December 1971 vol 827 c266W
Mr. Dell

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will list all investments of all kinds by the Government or its agencies in private industry.

Mr. Jenkin

This Question could only be fully answered at the cost of disproportionate time and effort. However, details of loan stock or other shares previously held by the Industrial Reorganisation Corporation but transferred to the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry on 1st May, 1971, were given by my hon. Friend the Under-Secretary of State for Trade and Industry to my hon. Friend the Member for Leicester, South-West (Mr. Tom Boardman) on 15th November, 1971. Other shareholdings held directly by Government Departments are given in the list below.—[Vol. 826, c.27–30.]
