Andrew Lewer: ...war record, alas he was killed in 1918. Margaret Bondfield, the first ever female Cabinet member, briefly served as MP for Northampton, so there are big shoes to fill indeed. The constituency of Northampton South is the home of Cosworth, Travis Perkins, Barclaycard and Carlsberg. Those are prestigious brands and significant employers for the area, but I draw colleagues’ attention to...

Richard Burden: ...which Lizzy Yarnold did so well at the winter Olympics was designed by McLaren here in the UK? Williams Advanced Engineering’s centre is also doing much great work, and companies such as Prodrive and Cosworth are also involved in state-of-the-art work. The UK, however, is the home of motorsport not only in Formula 1, but in so many other ways. The national and grassroots series are...

Opposition Day — [1st allotted day]: Industry (Government Support) (16 Jun 2010)

Vincent Cable: ...merits. I was giving examples of car companies that have flourished and coped with the recession without coming for Government support. Before I went to visit Bentley, I went to another factory, Cosworth-one of several Formula 1 manufacturers in this country, using very high technology. It was flourishing, providing highly skilled manufacturing employment and was not dependent on...

British Grand Prix (21 Oct 2004)

Lord Astor of Hever: ...taking place rather publicly, are damaging to the reputation of the British motorsport industry, which will be further damaged by the possible loss of 1,000 highly skilled jobs at Jaguar Racing and Cosworth. Is it not now time for Her Majesty's Government to take a more direct role to limit any further damage and demonstrate that this country is committed to and capable of hosting...

Engineering (31 Mar 2004)

Viscount Goschen: ...the cluster of world-leading firms are gathered together. There is a community of firms with Jordan, BAR, Jaguar, Renault, Williams, McLaren and Minardi. We have also heard about the engine builders, Cosworth and Ilmor. The rally teams with such English-sounding names as Mitsubishi, Subaru and Hyundai have all chosen to base their teams in the UK. I suggest that the industry is important...

Orders of the Day — Debate on the Address: Rights, Freedoms and Responsibilities (5 Nov 1991)

Mr Iain Mills: ...serious ones. The death riders go to the end of the walkways, stop and run off. It is extremely difficult for the police to chase them without going in for the same sort of speeding. The fantastic Ford Cosworth and the BMW 7 series are the favourite models to steal, and the police have no chance of keeping up unless they too indulge in dangerous driving. I seek an assurance from the...

Prisoners of War (Compensation) (6 Jun 1991)

Dr Michael Clark: ...of a south-east Essex man as a Japanese prisoner of war. My right hon. Friend is also aware of the other books on the subject that have been written.

Friend the Member for Cambridge (Mr. Rhodes James). Many...

The car won the 1985 Duke of Edinburgh prize for design excellence. There were 14 finishers at last year's...

Opposition Day: Industry and New Technologies (15 May 1985)

Mr Roger King: ...ourselves on some of the great attributes that we have as a country. In formula I racing car design we are world renowned for our expertise. Our engine technology has been unsurpassed, with the Cosworth engine having powered almost all the formula I winners for nearly 15 years until it was superseded by later designs. Robin Herd, one of the chief designers of March racing cars, has just...

Motor Racing Industry (19 Dec 1980)

Mr Hector Monro: suspended, redundancy in that part of the industry is likely to follow. I have visited the McLaren works and I know of the exceptional standard of engineering in grand prix racing today. Hon. Members have rightly mentioned Cosworth Engineering, which is world famous and powers 80 per cent. of the Formula 1 cars. There are many subcontractors to the motor racing industry whose future...
