asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether he will publish in the Official Report a table showing production and exports of motor cars in the United Kingdom and the principal producing countries in 1979, 1980 and the first half of 1981.

asked the Secretary of State for Industry how many applications have been made, and of these how many have been approved, by firms in Wales wishing to convert to coal under the scheme announced by the Chancellor of the Exchequer; what grants in total have been made to firms in Wales; and whether he has any information as to the total amount of Welsh coal likely to be consumed by schemes approved in respect of firms in Wales.

Six applications have so far been received from companies in Wales for grant assistance under the coal fired boiler scheme. Two offers of grant have been made. I have no information of the amount of Welsh coal likely to be consumed as a result of projects receiving grant under this scheme.
