§ Mrs. Renée Short
asked the Secretary of State for Industry what action he intends to take in response to the recommendations made in the Department of Employment's report on the employment effects of microelectronics.
§ Mr. David Mitchell
The study group set up by the Department of Employment in July 1978 is still examining the question of the employment effects of micro-electronics. It hopes to complete its work in the next month or so, but I and my colleagues are not yet aware of its recommendations.
