HC Deb 18 January 1980 vol 976 c887W
Mr. Ashton

asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether it is his policy to sell off any part of the steel industry.

Mr. Michael Marshall

This is a matter for the BSC. Under the Iron and Steel Act 1975 the Secretary of State has no power to direct the corporation to sell assets used in the production of iron and steel products.
