HC Deb 22 January 1975 vol 884 cc399-400W
Mrs. Bain

asked the Secretary of State for Industry how many representations he has received in the last six months urging the setting up of a separate Scottish Steel Corporation.

Mr. Meacher

There have been a number of representations about reorganising the steel industry in Scotland. There has been one occasion when direct reference was made to a separate Scottish Steel Corporation; in this connection I would refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave to the hon. Member for Perth and East Perthshire (Mr. Crawford) on 29th November 1974.—[Vol. 882, c. 278–9.]
