Q19.

asked the Prime Minister whether she will publish a White Paper on the Government's plans to encourage ownership by employees and other individuals of shares in the nationalised industries.

We will be taking the opportunity offered by our plans to sell shares in certain nationalised industries to implement our policy of encouraging wider share ownership including ownership by employees, but I have no plans to publish a White Paper on this subject.
