asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he is satisfied that British Leyland is achieving the target of improved efficiency and better industrial relations as forecast in the NEB Summary Report published in July 1976; and if he will make a statement.

I refer the hon. Member to the answer that my right hon. Friend gave to the hon. Member for Rushcliffe (Mr. Clarke) on 25th April—[Vol. 930, c. 700.]

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if productivity in British Leyland increased or decreased in the 15-month period covered by British Leyland's 1975–76 Report.

By December 1976 output of cars per man had fallen slightly below the figure since October 1975, but there have been significant improvements since then. My right hon. Friend told the House on 2nd March that the improvements in productivity achieved up to last summer had not been maintained, and that a review of British Leyland's plans had become necessary.
