Lord Jenkins of Putney

asked Her Majesty's Government:

Whether they endorse the comments of Lord Young of Graffham in a recent letter to the Independent (30th November) that "British Aerospace was the only company to approach me to buy Rover" and that "no other car company made a serious enquiry."

The Minister of State, Department of Trade and Industry (Lord Trefgarne)

My Lords, Ministers are not responsible for endorsing (or otherwise) the comments of others.
