HC Deb 13 March 1986 vol 93 cc587-8W
30. Mr. Sayeed

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what plans he has to increase share participation by employees in their own and other publicly quoted companies; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Moore

I cannot anticipate my right hon. Friend's Budget statement. However the Government remain firmly committed to supporting both employee share ownership and wider share ownership generally. Our policies have already encouraged the introduction and operation of large numbers of employee share schemes, and have enabled millions of people to obtain shares in privatised companies.
