HC Deb 14 February 1991 vol 185 c570W
24. Mr. Clifford Forsythe

To ask the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what effect terrorist destruction of businesses will have on Government plans for business expansion in Northern Ireland.

Mr. Needham

Terrorist destruction of businesses will obviously make the promotion of Northern Ireland as an investment location more difficult in overseas markets by heightening potential investors' concern about security. This is particularly disappointing after a period when investment in the Province has been very encouraging.
