HC Deb 08 February 1995 vol 254 c313W
29. Sir David Madel

To ask the President of the Board of Trade what new measures his Department is considering to help the car industry in 1995; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Charles Wardle

Last May's White Paper "Competitiveness: Helping Business to Win" identified a wide range of factors critical to the United Kingdom's international competitiveness. We are reviewing with the car industry the importance of each of these to its own performance and aim to agree, during 1995, a joint programme for accelerating the recovery that is already under way in this key sector.
