HC Deb 01 February 1984 vol 53 c251W
43. Mr. Fallon

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will make a statement on his Department's privatisation programme.

Mr. Norman Lamont

Plans are well advanced to privatise British Telecom later this year. In addition, my right hon. Friend is examining the scope for privatisation in all the other nationalised industries for which he is responsible, together with Rolls-Royce, British Leyland and shareholdings of the British Technology Group.
