HC Deb 04 November 1974 vol 880 c34W
27. Mr. King

asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether he intends to respect the views of all those employed in an industry when determining whether to proceed with nationalisation; and, if so, whether such views are to be obtained by secret ballot.

Mr. Benn

In the industries for which I am responsible, referred to in the Gracious Speech, representatives of the employees have already long expressed themselves overwhelmingly in favour of public ownership.
