HC Deb 31 July 1974 vol 878 cc439-40W
Mr. Michael Roberts

asked the Secretary of State for Wales (1) what consideration he has given to the report of the Cardiff area task force set up to consider possible redundancies in the steel industry;

(2) when he proposes to publish the report of the Cardiff area task force concerned with possible steel redundancies.

Mr. Rowlands

The report is now being considered in the context of the Government's review of the British Steel Corporation strategy and closure programme and in the light of changes in circumstances which have taken place since it was prepared. The work of the task forces has from the time of their appointment been regarded as confidential.
