§ Mr. Gordon Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for Industry, with reference to the endorsement by Her Majesty's Government in June 1979 of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development declaration on international investment and multinational enterprises, and to the support given by 60 United Kingdom-based multinationals to the voluntary guidelines recommended in the declaration, if he will list the names of the said 60 multinationals; and if he will name those persons who represented the United Kingdom on the Committee on International Investment and Multinational Enterprises which is studying the operation of the guidelines.584W
§ Mr. David Mitchell
I understand that over 60 multinationals operating in the United Kingdom have now indicated their support for the OECD guidelines for multinational enterprises, but I am not able to provide a complete list of names of these companies. A number of officials from this Department have represented the United Kingdom on the OECD committees and working groups which are concerned with the operation of the guidelines.
