asked the Lord Privy Seal whether any proposals now before the Government for assisting the export of motor cars and motor cycles include also the aircraft engine industry; and, if not, whether the addition of this industry to any scheme can be considered?
The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative. With regard to the second part, I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the reply which I gave to the hon. Member for Newcastle North (Sir N. Grattan-Doyle) on 26th November. I am sending the hon. and gallant Member a copy of that reply, from which he will see that I have already met the representatives of various trades, and that I hope as opportunity offers to meet the representatives of many other industries in this country.
