68. Mr. Gregor MacKenzie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what discussions he has had with the chairman of the British Steel Corporation on the future of the steel industry in Scotland; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Younger

I discussed the BSC's operations in Scotland and other matters when I met the chairman of the corporation on 16 October, and my hon. Friend the Minister with responsibility for industry and education is participating with colleagues in a meeting with him today at which there will be an initial discussion of the board's corporate plan.
