HC Deb 10 February 1986 vol 91 c362W
Mr. John Mark Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what assurances he has sought from General Motors about the security of the jobs of the employees at Land Rover in Solihull.

Mr. Peter Morrison

I refer my hon. Friend to the statement my right hon. Friend made on 3 February 1986 which outlined the undertakings that we would require before any arrangement with General Motors would be acceptable to the Government. The GM worldwide distribution network particularly in the United States of America also offers the opportunity for substantial and early additional sales of Land Rover products thereby enhancing job prospects in Solihull.
