HC Deb 13 March 1980 vol 980 c640W
Q11. Mr. Ioan Evans

asked the Prime Minister if she will make a statement on the current situation in the steel industry.

The Prime Minister

Some progress was made in the negotiations between the BSC and the unions concerned over the last three days. I regret that a settlement has not been reached and I hope that one will soon be forthcoming on terms the BSC can afford.
