§ 1979. Mr. Parkinson
The following are the market shares for 1980—unless stated otherwise—in percentage terms:
percentage Italy *0.1 France 2.9 West Germany 10.4 United Kingdom 11.9 Luxembourg 20.6 Belgium 24.6 Netherlands 26.4
percentage Denmark 30.9 Irish Republic †31.1 Greece 49.2
† January-September 1980.
No reliable estimate can be made of the overall market share which would be compatible with a viable Community industry. The Japanese authorities and their manufacturers are fully aware that the Government expect a significant reduction in their share of the United Kingdom car market this year compared with 1980.
