41. Mr. Edward M. Taylor
asked the Minister of Power how many product divisions will be established by the British Steel Corporation in their reorganisation; and where the headquarters of the various divisions will be located.
§ 44. Sir J. Gilmour
asked the Minister of Power if he will direct that the headquarters of at least one of the proposed product divisions of the British Steel Corporation should be sited in Scotland; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Mason
The British Steel Corporation has made a Second Report on Organisation to me under Section 4(1) of the Iron and Steel Act, 1967, and I have laid this before Parliament today in accordance with Section 4(4) of that Act. As I told my hon. Friend the Member for Bothwell on 22nd January [Vol. 776, c.136], further studies are in progress about what should replace the present Group structure, in which special attention is being given to Scottish, Welsh and regional interests. When the Corporation's full proposals have been received the Government will consider its decision.
