asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he has received the British Leyland 1979 business plan; and if he will place a copy in the Library.

My right hon. Friend's predecessor received the BL 1979 corporate plan together with the report and recommendations of the National Enterprise Board earlier this year and he reported to the House on 2 April. My right hon. Friend has not yet received the BL 1980 corporate plan though he expects to do so shortly.BL's corporate plans contain substantial material which is commercially confidential and the publication of which would be of value to BL's competitors. However, as much information as may be consistent with protection of BL's competitive position will be made available to the House when my right hon. Friend comes to report on the Government's conclusions and intentions, following his consideration of the 1980 plan and the NEB's recommendations.
