asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will publish in the Official Report a list of the 150 companies with which he expects to make planning agreements in accordance with his statement to Parliament on 17th February.
:No. We would like to have agreements with all the most important manufacturing firms, such as those at present in category I of the Price Code, but this will take some years. In that time the category I list is likely to change substantially. There are, too, important sectors in which category I companies do not figure large.
asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether consideration has been given to the use of price controls as a means of support for the system of planning agreements.
Prices policy will be an important element for discussion in all planning agreements.
