Investment (Hansard, 16 January 1997)
HC Deb 16 January 1997 vol 288 c381W
22. Ms Quin

To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will make a statement on investment in the United Kingdom economy. [9537]

Mrs. Angela Knight

UK businesses have invested more in relation to gross domestic product in the 1990s than in the 1980s, having invested more in the 1980s than in the 1970s. In setting the right climate of low inflation and steady growth, the Government's economic policies are encouraging business to expand and invest with confidence.
