§ Mr. Crowther
asked the Secretary of State for Industry what level of (a) manned and (b) unmanned steel-making capacity now exists in the plants covered by the Phoenix 2 discussions; and what the distribution is, in percentage terms, between the public and private sectors.
§ Mr. Butcher
[pursuant to his reply, 26 April 1983, c. 283]: Details of capacity and manning levels are commercially confidential matters. There remains, however, significant overcapacity in both the public and private sectors of the engineering steels industry.
