HC Deb 13 July 1981 vol 8 c264W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Trade whether the cost escalation scheme will be continued on a more permanent basis rather than be made subject to annual review.

Mr. Biffen

Representations to this effect have been made by industry and will be fully considered in the review now taking place of the scheme's future when the power to operate it expires next March. The conclusions of this review will be announced in due course.
