HC Deb 27 July 1983 vol 46 cc483-4W
27. Mr. Janner

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he will take steps to assist those industries in Leicester which are labour intensive.

Mr. Norman Lamont

The Government already have a wide range of measures to help industry throughout the country. As well as help with awareness, training, advice and consultancy, Leicester companies are eligible for grants under our support for innovation programme. I hope all industries in Leicester, whether labour or capital-intensive, will not hesitate to approach my Department with good innovative projects.
