Mr. Jim Cunningham

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what her policy is on encouraging manufacturing in the West Midlands. [58239]

My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State published a document on 16 May setting out the Government's Manufacturing Strategy. I understand this has been broadly welcomed in the West Midlands.
