HC Deb 01 April 1980 vol 982 cc154-5W
Mr. Alton

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will make a statement on the closure of International Sports Company Limited, Liverpool.

Mr. David Mitchell

My noble Friend the Minister of State has had discussions with senior representatives of the company about alternatives to closure of the factory at Speke. However, the decision can only be a matter for the commercial judgment of the company concerned.
