HC Deb 12 December 1983 vol 50 cc365-6W
Mr. Michael Forsyth

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will list the nationalised industries for which he is responsible and the plans he has for their future privatisation.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

I am responsible for the Welsh water authority. I have no plans to privatise the authority but it is encouraged to make use of private sector services whenever it is beneficial for it so to do.
