asked the Secretary of State for Industry what progress has been made by British Shipbuilders to ensure that all employees can participate in the management decision-making process.
The latest position on the promotion of industrial democracy within British Shipbuilders is contained in its 1977–78 report and accounts, copies of which were laid before the House on 14th November 1978. I am sending a copy to my right hon. Friend.
asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether he will give the details of the future capital expenditure authorised by British Shipbuilders.
The report and accounts of British Shipbuilders show that at 31st March 1978 future capital expenditure authorised but not contracted for by the corporation amounted to £14·6 million. The detailed breakdown of this figure is a matter for British Shipbuilders.
