HC Deb 27 November 2003 vol 415 c450W
Mr. Bellingham

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what representations her Department has received from the motor industry regarding possible membership of the euro. [142127]

Jacqui Smith

I have had discussions with many companies from the automotive sector, and had a range of representations on whether the UK should join the euro. The Government's policy on membership of the single currency is unchanged. The determining factor is the national economic interest, as assessed by the Government's five economic tests.
