HC Deb 27 June 1978 vol 952 c479W
Mr. Lee

asked the Secretary of State for Trade if he is satisfied that the projected British Petroleum takeovers in Germany and the Netherlands will not result in loss of jobs in the United Kingdom; and if he will make a statement upon the economic implications of these bids.

Mr. Joel Barnett
