§ Mr. Tebbit
asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he was consulted by BLMC Limited before that company declared its intention to dismiss workers in its Italian subsidiary company, Innocenti, because their productivity is lower than that of home-based workers in the parent company; and whether he is willing in 653W principle to finance a workers' co-operative at the Innocenti works or to meet representatives of the workers concerned.
§ Mr. Kaufman
The company has kept us informed of the problems arising from the continuing heavy losses at Innocenti. But action there is a matter for the British Leyland board.
