§ Mr. John Wells
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what representations he has received from the Institution of Heating and Ventilating Engineers and other recognised long established non-chartered bodies of engineers about their anxieties about their future right to practise; and if he will take steps to safeguard their rights.
§ Mr. Michael Heseltine
I have had numerous representations from members of the Institution of Heating and Ventilating Engineers and other engineering interests. I understand their anxieties, and I intend to arrive at a fair and just solution for all concerned.
