HC Deb 24 July 1990 vol 177 c152W
Mr. Allen

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what assessment he has made of the impact upon British industry of the locating of Ford's proposed automotive components plant in Hungary; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Douglas Hogg

[holding answer 19 July 1990]: The siting of investment is a commercial matter for the company. Many overseas companies, particularly in the car and automotive components sectors, including Ford, have invested in the United Kingdom, attracted by the favourable climate for business created by the Government.
