§ Mr. Golding
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will consider advising the extension of the Queen's Award to Industry to collieries and other productive enterprises which have achieved substantial increases in productivity.
§ The Prime Minister
I am replying to this Question.
The scope of the Scheme was one of the subjects considered by the McFadzean Committee last year. Their recommendation, with which I agree, was that the 84W Award should continue for the time being to be related only to outstanding achievement in exports and technological innovation.
