To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what household electrical goods are currently made in Wales; what steps he is taking to promote this industry; and if he will make a statement.

The main household electrical goods currently made in Wales are as follows:

  • Colour televisions
  • Video cassette recorders
  • CD/Hi-Fi systems
  • Microwave ovens
  • Washing machines
  • Dishwashers
  • Tumble dryers
In the case of colour televisions, video recorders, microwave ovens and washing machines production in Wales accounts for over 50 per cent. of the total United Kingdom output.I continually refer to the strengths of Welsh industry in my discussions with various industrialists and organisations both here and overseas.
