HC Deb 24 June 1992 vol 210 c236W
Mr. Nicholas Winterton

To ask the President of the Board of Trade (1) if he will make a statement detailing his policies for the future of the United Kingdom manufacturing industries;

(2) if he will make it his policy to ensure that manufacturing industries remain major, successful and competitive contributors to the economy.

Mr. Sainsbury

The Government's policy is to provide the environment within which British industry can thrive. As the Confederation of British Industry noted in its report "Competing with the World's Best", recent years have seen a transformation in Britain's manufacturing base.
