HC Deb 15 December 1983 vol 50 c537W
Mr. Michael Forsyth

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

Mr. Pattie

My right hon. Friend does not sponsor any nationalised industries. He is, however, responsible for the following executive non-governmental bodies:

  • International Military Services Ltd
  • The Services Sound and Vision Corporation
  • The National Army Museum
  • The RAF Museum

There are no plans to alter the status of the first two of these bodies. A designation order under the National Heritage Act 1983 has been laid before Parliament to enable the national Army museum to become a grant-aided body. Designation of the RAF museum is under consideration.
