HC Deb 17 May 1976 vol 911 c358W
28. Mr. Ridsdale

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what encouragement he will give to prevent key personnel leaving industry for local government employment.

Mr. Les Huckfield

I should not wish to comment on individual decisions. But I want to affirm the need for industry to retain and attract good people. This is essential if we are to succeed in reversing the relative decline in our national industrial performance.
