HC Deb 27 November 1985 vol 87 cc590-1W
49. Mr. Andrew MacKay

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what impact his Department's privatisation programme has had on share ownership in the United Kingdom.

Mr. Pattie

The sales of shares in British Telecom, British Aerospace and Jaguar have made a major contribution to widening individual share ownership, which has roughly doubled as a result of this Government's privatisation programme.
