§ Sir George Young
asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he will institute a review of the system of scrutinising 364W potential recommendations for the Queen's Award to Industry, with a view to harmonisation of the activities of the companies recommended with the policies of Her Majesty's Government, such as those relating to the reduction of tobacco consumption.
§ Mr. Meacher
No. The Queen's Awards for Export and Technology are confined to the recognition of outstanding achievement in the fields of exports and technology respectively.
