HC Deb 27 November 1972 vol 847 c6W
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.
