Speeches in Parliament

Mark Pawsey MP speaks up for the UK motor industry

On Thursday, Rugby MP Mark Pawsey and the Business Minister Mark Prisk discussed the recent success in the country’s car industry in the House of Commons.  Given that Mark has lived in Rugby all of his life, he fondly remembers a time when the area around the town enjoyed significant car manufacturing success.  However, after the trade union strikes of the 1970s, the industry suffered a severe downturn in trade and Mark took the opportunity to pay tribute to the sector and the Government for the recent success it has enjoyed.
