§ 40. Mr. William Hamilton
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will make a statement on the prospects for German investment in the United Kingdom in the next 12 months.
§ Mr. Chataway
Our entry into the EEC and our improving economic performance should increase the attractions of the United Kingdom for German investors, and I hope they will be influenced also by the benefits offered under the Industry Act and by the availability of skilled labour here.
I will be attending early next year in Germany two conferences to promote German investment in the United Kingdom.
