HC Deb 14 February 1984 vol 54 c148W
Mr. Speller

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will accept the proposals presented to him in August 1983 by the Clothing Economic Development Unit for investment aid to the clothing industry; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Trippier

My right hon. Friend is carefully considering the clothing economic development committee's proposals for investment assistance, together wih similar proposals from the knitting and footwear economic development committees, the British Textile Confederation and the British Leather Federation. He hopes to be in a position to reply to all these organisations in the next few weeks.
