§ Mr. Barry Jones
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he or any of his officials have had a meeting with the management of the INMOS plant at Newport about future employment prospects there.
§ Mr. Butcher
No. Employment prospects at Newport are a matter for my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Wales. However, officials from this Department's electronics applications division have always maintained regular contact with the company, and continue to do so.
