Abstract. This paper examines the course of the deregulation and privatisation of public enterprises in the UK since The UK privatisation programme has been the most significant in the OECD involving the transfer of ownership of over 7% of GDP from the public to the private sectors.   When British Telecommunications was being prepared for a Thatcher privatisation in a new glossy corporate magazine was introduced in the district office where I worked and the union publication was banned.

Column Telecommunications. pm The Secretary of State for Trade and Industry and President of the Board of Trade (Mr. Peter Lilley): With permission, Mr. Speaker, I should like to make a statement on telecommunications. I shall make proposals aimed at increasing competition, stimulating innovation and widening customer choice in all areas of the market. This chapter deals with developments in industrial relations in the British telecommunications services industry over the past decade or so.¹ Deregulation has brought new players into the game. Nonetheless, the former state monopoly supplier, British Telecom (BT), remains the major actor, responsible in for the great bulk of the telephony.

Even in conservative Germany where the state telecommunications monopoly continues to regin long after BT's has begun to fray, the government has finally acted and Deutsche Telekom is coming to market. The antics of the water companies and doubts about the practicality of selling off British Rail have blurred the image of privatisation. Mass production, application of the principles of specialization, division of labor, and standardization of parts to the manufacture of goods. Such manufacturing processes attain high rates of output at low unit cost. Learn more about the history, uses, and economic and environmental effects of mass production.
