HC Deb 31 January 1977 vol 925 cc12-3W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what has been the total value of investment in the Special Steels Division of the British Steel Corporation in the period 1970 to 1976, inclusive; and what current projects are in hand.

Mr. Les Huckfield

This is a matter for the Corporation. It tells me, however, that between April 1970 and March 1976 a total of £160 million was invested by Special Steels Division. Major projects now under way within the new Sheffield Division are as follows: Aldwarke fourth are furnace and finishing banks; Shepcote Lane and Tinsley Park stainless products development; and cleaning projects at several works.
