HC Deb 05 February 1987 vol 109 cc747-8W
Mr. Leighton

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what efforts he is making to improve the performance of British motor components manufacturers.

Mr. John MacKay

The information taken from the survey of school transport undertaken in September 1986 is as follows:

Mr. Giles Shaw

The Government have created a climate in which industry, including motor components manufacturers, can prosper. It is for the components manufacturers, as for industry generally, to take advantage of this climate. Through their national quality campaign the Government have sought to encourage industry to raise the quality of products made in the United Kingdom. Industry, too, can play its part, as illustrated by Jaguar's "Pursuit of Excellence" awards, recognising the achievements of its best component suppliers, which the Government warmly welcome.
