HC Deb 09 February 1956 vol 548 cc211-2W
89. Mr. Albu

asked the President of the Board of Trade what he estimates to have been the fixed capital expenditure made in 1955 by the industries supplying components to the motor industry comparable to the figure published in the Board of Trade, Journal for the motor industry itself of £52 million; and what are the amounts forecast for 1956.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

I regret that this information is not available, as the inquiry shows changes in fixed capital expenditure in broad groups of industries only.
