HC Deb 18 May 1981 vol 5 c17W
14. Mr. Dykes

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will arrange an early meeting with his counterparts in the other European Economic Community member States to discuss the formation of a Community-wide industrial recovery plan.

Sir Keith Joseph

No. Industrial recovery will result from bringing inflation under control and from co-operation between entrepreneurial managements and adaptable work forces in the profitable production of manufactured goods at low unit costs which beat the competition and please the customer.
