The hon. Member for Sheffield, Park (Mr. Mulley), drew attention to the interest which workers in the mining industry might be taking in the outcome of the developments in regard to the steel industry. I was interested that the right hon. Member for Vauxhall (Mr. G. R. Strauss) recommended that steps should be taken to de-centralise control of the steel industry about two days after we had been told of the suspicion in the mining industry about the self-same course which we have recommended to the mining industry.
