HC Deb 05 February 1992 vol 203 c190W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what recent representations he has received from United Kingdom manufacturing industry about future business prospects.

Mr. Lilley

I have received the excellent report by the CBI's manufacturing advisory group which showed that recent years have seen a transformation in Britain's manufacturing base. United Kingdom-based manufacturers are well placed in some of the key growth markets of the future.
