HC Deb 14 March 1991 vol 187 c627W
Mr. Rathbone

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how accurately his Department's sector groups match the responsibility areas of individual Kuwait Ministries; and what arrangements he is making to ensure the closest liasion between the two.

Mr. Sainsbury

The sector groups were originally set up to match areas of responsibility in the Kuwait emergency recovery programme, which broadly correspond to those of Kuwaiti Ministries. Some changes have since been made in the light of developments, but it is not considered feasible for their responsibilities to match those of Kuwaiti Ministries on every point.
