HC Deb 01 May 1980 vol 983 c628W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will give a directive in the national interest to the British Steel Corporation that it should not use as a pretext to close entirely any of its plants in Wales the recent decisions by certain trade unions representing members working in the steel industry in Wales to oppose the slimming down of steel works; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Michael Marshall

No. I have no powers to do so under the Iron and Steel Act 1975.
