HC Deb 22 July 1980 vol 989 c688W
Mr. Heffer

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what action he is prepared to take to ensure that the paper industry on Merseyside, such as Bowater, Ellesmere Port, is maintained, and the work force guaranteed full employment.

Mr. David Mitchell

Discussions are taking place with the company about the problems of the Ellesmere Port paper mill but decisions on its commercial future are a matter for Bowater's management.
