HC Deb 25 January 1983 vol 35 c373W
Mr. Hooley

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what steps he is taking to monitor the transfer of manufacturing industry from the United Kingdom to other European Community countries.

Mr. MacGregor

I am satisfied that the present arrangements for stimulating productive investment and the growth of the United Kingdom industrial base allow for adequate account to be taken of the foreign investment intentions of manufacturing industry and for any significant shifts to be monitored.
