HC Deb 20 January 1986 vol 90 c17W
Mr. Nellist

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if, pursuant to his answer to the hon. Member for Coventry, South-East on Wednesday 15 January, Official Report, column 1060, he will list those businesses which are intended to be wholly returned to the private sector during the current Parliament.

Mr. Peter Morrison

British Shipbuilders aims to sell its remaining warship building yards by 31 March 1986. It is my right hon. and learned Friend's intention that, subject to market conditions, Rolls Royce should be returned to the private sector within the lifetime of this Parliament. Decisions on the method and timing of returning other businesses to the private sector will be announced when they have been taken.
