HC Deb 02 December 1980 vol 995 c74W
10. Mr. Straw

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what is his policy on the future ownership and organisation of the Royal ordnance factories; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Hayhoe

The future development of the Royal ordnance factories organisation is at present being considered by a study group under the chairmanship of my noble Friend the Minister of State for Defence. The study group's report is expected in a few weeks's time: it will then have to be considered by the Government. The House will be informed of the outcome as soon as possible.
