HC Deb 13 December 1979 vol 975 c761W
Mr. Campbell-Savours

asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether, in view of the misrepresentation of the objectives of the North of England Development Council in the Cooper and Lybrand report, he will discard the report's findings and institute a further inquiry into the council's activities.

Mr. David Mitchell

[pursuant to his reply, 12 December 1979]: The report by Coopers and Lybrand Associates Ltd. is still being considered within the Department. It would not, of course, be appropriate to take any action on the report until our consideration is complete.
