HC Deb 04 November 1987 vol 121 cc702-3W
Mr. Campbell-Savours

asked the Prime Minister what investigations are currently going on into the affairs of ICL.

The Prime Minister

Investigations under the Companies Act are matters for the Department of Trade and Industry. Investigations in relation to defence issues are matters for the Ministry of Defence. Similarly, the Inland Revenue and Her Majesty's Customs and Excise have responsibility for their own investigations. Most such investigations are of a confidential nature for obvious reasons.
