HC Deb 09 May 1989 vol 152 cc375-6W
Mr. Bright

To ask the Secretary of State for Employment what information he has on the effect of the expansion of Vauxhall Motors Ltd. Luton plant on the local unemployment register.

Mr. Lee

It is not possible to forecast what effect this investment will have on the rate of unemployment in the Watford and Luton travel-to-work area, but I am sure it will be welcomed locally and will help maintain jobs and prosperity in the area.
