The Government is committed to ensuring the effective and efficient management of publicly owned assets and keeps ownership of all assets under review. Where there is no longer a strong policy reason for continued public ownership or where there is potential for an asset to operate more sensibly and efficiently in the private sector, the Government will continue to look into the potential sale of public sector assets.
