§ Mr. Cousins
To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he will place in the Library the results of his study into the competitive success of the British chemical industry.
§ Mr. Sainsbury
I have placed a copy of Dr. Jon Bird's study, "Competitiveness in the United Kingdom Chemical Industry", from which commercially sensitive information has been deleted, in the Library of the House. The study was a preliminary investigation into this important area and is being circulated for consideration by experts in the industry and will be used as a basis for further discussion between my Department and the chemical industry.
