HC Deb 18 July 1984 vol 64 c231W
29. Dame Judith Hart

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what opportunity he has had in the last three months for discussions with Ministers from developing countries about their need for, but lack of purchasing power for, the vehicles produced at the British Leyland plant at Bathgate.

Mr. Younger

None. The export potential for products from Bathgate was only one of several factors taken into account in reviewing the viability of the British Leyland plant, but the company's assessment was that the market served by Bathgate could, for the foreseeable future, be more economically supplied from elsewhere within the company.
