HC Deb 02 November 1989 vol 159 c326W
Mr. Yeo

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what is the level of investment in Northern Ireland by Japanese companies.

Mr. Needham

There are three manufacturing companies in Northern Ireland which are either wholly or partly owned by Japanese companies.

In addition a fourth Japanese company operates a marketing and distribution outlet there.

It is not possible to give precise figures for investment.
