HC Deb 13 July 1983 vol 45 cc388-9W
Mr. McQuarrie

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he 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. Lawson

[pursuant to the reply, 12 July 1983, c. 302]: None. Responsibility for sponsoring nationalised industries as set out in part 3 of the public expenditure White Paper rests with individual departmental Ministers.
