§ Mr. Hooley
asked the Secretary of State for Industry what progress is being made by the working party on the cutlery industry; and when it expects to report.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
The working party has fully considered the joint study carried out in 1978. It has set up subgroups which are preparing proposals for action for each sub-sector of the industry, for examination by the working party, which aims to complete its report in the autumn.
