HC Deb 11 June 1973 vol 857 cc224-5W
35. Mr. Allason

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will intervene to prevent the closure and disposal of the assets of the Watling Street Tool and Gauge Company Limited of Markyate, in view of its contribution to development work in the British aerospace industry.

Mr. Anthony Grant

No. I consider that this is a matter for the commercial judgement of the parent company.
