British Leyland boss Lord Stokes called last night for a new plan to replace ” the same worn-out -solutions ” to Britain’s money troubles.

Attacking the Government’s efforts, he said: “At the very time when we need to expand our industrial activities, we get further additional burdens such as increased National Insurance contributions and increases in corporation tax.”

Lord Stokes, speaking at a dinner in London, also slammed Labour for failing to act against shop-floor troublemakers.
