Needle Industries

EDM number 469 in 1990-91, proposed by Jeff Rooker on 13/02/1991.

That this House is appalled that Coates Viyella has sold the Knitting Pins Division of Needle Industries of Studley, West Midlands, to a German company planning to transfer the business out of the United Kingdom, so adding a further 80 people to the already high unemployment in the heartland of British manufacturing.

This motion has been signed by a total of 20 MPs.
