HC Deb 13 February 1986 vol 91 cc520-1W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what information he has concerning the level of investment in the United Kingdom textile and clothing industries in each of the last 12 months for which figures are available; and if he will give the comparable figures for each month in the last five years.

Mr. Peter Morrison

The information requested is not available on a monthly basis. Quarterly estimates at 1980 prices of the direct capital expenditure of the textiles, leather and clothing industries from 1981 to the third quarter of 1985 were published in table 3, page 554 of British Business, 13 December 1985.
