HC Deb 29 June 2000 vol 352 cc576-7W
Jane Griffiths

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry which organisations were consulted on Stage 1 of the Hawley Review Group; and if he will publish the responses of those who replied to the consultation on the stage one report. [127723]

Mr. Alan Johnson

This is a matter for the Engineering Council, whose review this is.

I understand that the Engineering Council sought views from nearly 700 organisations and individuals and is still receiving, considering and reviewing the many contributions it has had from various parts of the engineering community as part of its continuing work. Outcomes will be part of the Group's final report.
