HC Deb 02 July 1984 vol 63 c17W
Mr. Gareth Wardell

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what representations he has received regarding the proposed merger between Lye Tinplate, Pontarddulais, and Afon Tinplate Co. Ltd.; and if he is satisfied that the necessary negotiations are proceeding satisfactorily.

Mr. Butcher

I have received a petition from some members of the Lye Tinplate work force. Negotiations are a matter for the owners of the two businesses concerned.
