HC Deb 10 November 1981 vol 12 c67W
24. Mr. Charles R. Morris

asked the Secretary of State for Defence whether he is satisfied with the progress made by Laurence Scott Ltd. in completing Ministry of Defence contracts for flame-proof electric motors.

Mr. Pattie

Laurence Scott Ltd. has no contracts with the Ministry of Defence for flame-proof motors. It does, however, supply some equipment, mainly as a subcontractor to Vickers Shipbuilding and Engineering Ltd. and other prime contractors. I understand that there has been some delay in programmes arising from industrial action.
