To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what consideration he is giving to promote assistance to the British bus building industry.

[holding answer 19 December 1991]: The British bus building industry has, in common with manufacturing industry in general, been hit by the world economic climate. It has suffered from excess capacity and is currently undergoing a period of restructuring.We have recently been in close contact with the main company in this field but have not been asked for and are not considering any direct assistance. The Government are continuing their policy of creating the right conditions for business and investment as we believe that this yields greater and longer lasting benefits.
