I thank my right hon. Friend for his statement and his engagement with those of us whose represent employees in the areas concerned—in my case, Luton. I would be grateful if he could indicate what reassurance has been given to PSA in recognition of the fact that part of the strength of the Luton plant arises from the quality of the supply chain and the investment that has been made in it over recent years. I hope that he can give us some reassurance, because an understanding of that position will help to secure jobs not just at Luton, but in the supply chain, which is so important to the home counties area around Bedfordshire.
