25. Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what consultations he has had with the First Secretary concerning the prospects for manufacturing industry in Wales for 2001. [141913]

I regularly discuss a wide range of issues with the First Secretary including prospects for Manufacturing in Wales.

This Government will continue to maintain the long-term economic stability Britain enjoys today, which will, in turn, allow businesses to invest and plan ahead with confidence.
