HC Deb 20 April 1988 vol 131 c434W
Mr. Cousins

To ask the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will list the recommendations so far agreed of the seven sector working parties established in the northern region of his Department; and if he will place in the Library the working papers of those working parties.

Mr. Atkins

The sector working groups do not make recommendations. The groups were formed to facilitate the informal exchange of ideas between industrialist and academic members on such issues as technology and training. They are not Government bodies or responsible to my Department and it is therefore not appropriate to place their working papers in the Library.
