Mr. John M. Taylor
To ask the President of the Board of Trade what discussions she had during her recent visit to Land Rover regarding the recruitment of skilled engineers; and if she will make a statement. 
§ Mr. Battle
Land Rover did not raise this matter during my right hon. Friend's recent visit.
The Government attach a high priority to raising skill levels in the workforce. DTI is closely involved, along with the local partners and vehicle manufacturers, in several initiatives to increase the supply of skilled engineers in the automotive sector.
