Mr Tom Litterick: Is the Secretary of State aware of the satisfaction and pleasure in Birmingham at the announcement of his policy to restrict the sale of council houses to tenants of two-years standing?

Private Business: British Leyland (Corporate Plan) (2 Apr 1979)

Mr Tom Litterick: Does the Secretary of State agree that, should there be a change of Government, the funds to which he referred would, as the Financial Times put it today, be at risk, and that therefore future projects such as the further development of the Land-Rover, the Range Rover, the super Mini and the Marina substitute project would be jeopardised, and with them the jobs of many thousands of British...

House of Commons (Refreshment Facilities) (26 Mar 1979)

House of Commons (Refreshment Facilities) (26 Mar 1979)

Mr Tom Litterick: I have listened to part of the right hon. Gentleman's speech with some care.

Will the right hon. Gentleman give us the benefit of his thoughts on that matter and tell us how it is that...

House of Commons (Refreshment Facilities) (26 Mar 1979)

Mr Tom Litterick: I am rather pleased that the hon. Member asked that, because it is not difficult to tell him what that money bought. It bought more inflation, a hell of a lot of anxiety and a waste of scarce materials and labour on the most incredible scale, and it disrupted and distorted the economies of all the nation States involved in NATO and the Warsaw Pact. In addition, because of its colossal scale,...

Member for Staffordshire, South-West (Mr. Cormack) may wish to describe the members of that...
