HC Deb 12 July 1983 vol 45 c314W
Mr. McQuarrie

asked the Secretary of State for Transport if he will list in the Official Report, all nationalised industries, whether statutory corporations, companies, or trading bodies of any sort, in which the Government now have any financial interest or for which they may make financial provision, in whole or part, for which he is the sponsoring Minister; and if he will list all subsidiaries or divisions of those industries which may carry on business under a different name from that of the parent nationalised industry.

Mr. Tom King

The nationalised industries for which I am the sponsoring Minister are:

  • British Airports Authority
  • British Airways Board
  • British Railways Board
  • National Bus Company

The subsidiaries of each of the industries are listed in their most recent annual reports and accounts, copies of which are available in the Library.

I am also responsible for the Civil Aviation Authority, which in some ways resembles a nationalised industry, and which has no subsidiaries.
