HC Deb 07 July 1986 vol 101 c90W
Mr. Pike

asked the Secretary of State for Defence what recent representations he has received regarding the proposed privatisation of the Royal Ordnance factories.

Mr. Lee

Since the announcement on 17 June 1986 of the deferment of this summer's flotation, in addition to a small number of letters from MPs, the trades unions and members of the public, several inquiries have been received from industry about Royal Ordnance plc. It would not be appropriate to disclose details at this stage.
