HC Deb 06 November 1978 vol 957 c74W
Mr. Dykes

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what discussions he has had with the management of Guest Keen and Nettlefolds Ltd. on the purposes to which the recent European Coal and Steel Community loan, which was approved by Her Majesty's Government, will be devoted.

Mr. Les Huckfield

Loans from the European Coal and Steel Community do not require approval of Her Majesty's Government and I have not been able to trace any recent discussions between my Department and Guest Keen and Nettle-folds Ltd. about a particular loan. If the hon. Member would like to send me details of what he has in mind, I would be glad to pursue this further.
