My hon. Friend is absolutely right that the choice that some of the world’s best motor manufacturers make to locate in the cluster reinforces our reputation. Last year, we launched the Aylesbury Vale enterprise zone, which supports the Silverstone high-performance technology cluster.

The local growth fund for his area includes an innovation centre, which is geared to automotive technology in the enterprise zone.
