§ Q32. Mr. Hal Miller
asked the Prime Minister whether he will call further meetings on the lines of those convened by his predecessor to assess the direction of his Government's industrial strategy.
§ The Prime Minister
Since becoming Prime Minister I have chaired three meetings of the National Economic Development Council, two of which have been devoted to consideration of progress on the industrial strategy. In addition to a number of informal discussions, I invited74W the chairmen and representatives of the sector working parties to two special meetings at Lancaster House last June and July to hear from those in industry how together we should carry forward the industrial strategy. I shall arrange further meetings when necessary.
