HC Deb 09 February 1981 vol 998 c265W
28. Mr. Edward Lyons

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will take steps to assist industry in West Yorkshire in 1981.

Mr. MacGregor

The Government will assist industry not only in West Yorkshire but also in the country as a whole by maintaining our present policies of reducing inflation and controlling public expenditure. I very much hope that management, unions and workforces will play their part by increasing productivity and thus making industry more competitive.
