HC Deb 01 March 1982 vol 19 c17W
Mr. Skinner

asked the Prime Minister whether, following the extent of over-subscription for shares in Amersham International, she is satisfied with the standard of professional advice available to the Government in respect of the disposal of publicly owned assets; and whether she will ensure that assessments made by merchant banks in such circumstances take greater account of market forces.

The Prime Minister

A wide range of professional advice is available to Governments. Each individual case involves difficult judgments about market factors.
