HC Deb 24 November 1980 vol 994 c8W
21. Mr. Jim Marshall

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he intends to announce any further measures for reversing the industrial decline of the United Kingdom.

Mr. David Mitchell

The Government believe that the best way to assist industrial recovery is to reverse the trend in inflation and help to improve the supply side of the economy. This we are doing. Much depends on companies' ability to seize market opportunities, improve productivity and negotiate reasonable wage settlements.
