Archive : Lyons writes to Spurrier

Jaguar Chairman Sir William Lyons writes to Sir Henry Spurrier, former Chairman of the Leyland group.

“I was so pleased to see that Donald Stokes has been put into the position I know you always planned for him. I am sure he will make a great success of it, and it must be a comfort to you to know that Leyland is still in good hands.

“I think the new Triumph 2000 is going to be a winner. I had a good look at it at the Show and was very impressed. At its price I think it has the edge on its competitors. It looks as though your worries about Standard are over.”
