§ Mr. Patrick Jenkin
asked the Minister of Power (1) what discussions he is holding with the Steel Industry Organising Committee or with the Industrial Reorganisation Corporation on the possibility of rationalising the production of special and alloy steels, including production by companies due to come into public ownership under the Iron and Steel Bill under private ownership;
(2) whether the Organising Committee for the Steel Industry is considering the rationalisation of special and alloy steel production.
§ Mr. Marsh
The Organising Committee are taking into account the problems of special and alloy steel production in their work on the reorganisation of the future public sector. I am keeping in close touch with them. Questions about the I.R.C. are for my right hon. Friend the First Secretary of State.
