ABSTRACT
The article reveals the concerns of the Chemical Industries Association (CIA) in Great Britain on the possible appointment of Gordon Brown as prime minister. It was reported that Brown and ministers are already considering moving responsibility for energy from the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). Steve Elliott, chief executive of the CIA, fears that such a move would weaken the industry.
