Greg Clark quotes

We will have to reflect on timing. For consumers who aren't able to be so active or so fleet of foot, they are being milked. It's in no one's interest at all to partition functioning markets.feedback

How that comes about over the next two years, we will argue our position, the Premier League will argue their position and the Government will listen to both and I suspect a sensible compromise will be reached.feedback

What we want to do is find a sensible way round that works for a post-Brexit Britain, that works for employment law and the Government, and works for the Premier League and works for the FA. For that compromise to work, it will be somewhere in the middle. It won't be an open-door policy, it won't be no foreigners. It will be, Let's let world-class Premier League teams bring in world-class players but not average international players.feedback

Companies around the world are making major investments and this offers long-term value for the UK as we punch above our weight. If the UK doesn't take this opportunity, many other countries will.feedback

We need to trial it carefully but this is life-saving technology. It would be wrong to convey this as inherently risky technology. Human error is a more 'dependable' source of accidents and fatalities and this has got to be a well tested, demonstrated and regulated. We don't want to get back to waving red flags; we can get it right and need to get to a common-sense application of technology that will save lives.feedback

We have a responsibility to ensure that the NDA's decisions reflect its legal obligations, including under procurement law, that further risks to taxpayers' money are contained and that robust arrangements are put in place to deliver this essential decommissioning programme. Taxpayers must be confident that public bodies are operating effectively and securing value for money. Where this has not been achieved such bodies should be subject to rigorous scrutiny.feedback

This was a defective procurement, with significant financial consequences, and I am determined that the reasons for it should be exposed and understood; that those responsible should properly be held to account; and that it should never happen again.feedback

Our iconic black cabs are famous across the world. The London Taxi Company's impressive new factory and R&D facility showcases the innovation that makes the UK a world leader in the development of new automotive technologies. Through our ambitious industrial strategy, we are committed to building on our strengths and taking advantage of the opportunities the new low-carbon economy provides.feedback

As we prepare to leave the EU, this government is committed through our industrial strategy to ensuring the UK remains one of the best places in the world to do business and we are able to help businesses seize on economic opportunities.feedback

Our automotive sector is one of the most productive in the world and Toyota's decision to invest £240m upgrading its Burnaston plant is a further boost to the UK auto sector. Toyota is one of the world's largest car producers and this inward investment underlines the company's faith in its employees and will help ensure the plant is well positioned for future Toyota models to be made in the UK.feedback

We have taken the opportunity to look at our arrangements to make sure they are kept up to date. We have said we would do that in the context of mergers, particularly if it relates to critical infrastructure, as outlined by the Hinkley Point C decision [to build a new nuclear power station with funding from China]. So we will be setting out some proposals in the weeks ahead.feedback

The context clearly is nothing to do with Brexit. This is a restructuring of the organisation. And in my discussions with PSA, actually the chief executive has said today that Brexit isn't an essential driver of this, and we want to have the best possible trading relationship with Europe, but in any event Carlos Tavares has said there are opportunities post-Brexit.feedback

We will continue to engage and work with PSA in the weeks and months ahead to ensure these assurances are kept and will build on the success of both sites for the long term.feedback

The government welcomes the assurance by PSA that they will respect the commitments made by GM to Vauxhall's employees and pensioners. We will continue to engage and work with PSA in the weeks and months ahead to ensure these assurances are kept and will build on the success of both sites for the long term.feedback

We've said that by being part of the UK automotive sector, all of the benefits of that in terms of research and development, in terms of trading, in terms of the expansion we see through the industrial strategy of the supply chain, will be available to all such companies. The fact that plants are going to be judged, as they tend to be in the automotive sector for new models, on the basis of their competitive efficiency is a strength for us in this country, because our automotive plants are the strongest in the world.feedback

Vauxhall has a long history of success in this country and we are determined to see that continue. The government welcomes the assurance by PSA that they will respect the commitments made by GM to Vauxhall's employees and pensioners.feedback

We will continue to engage and work with PSA in the weeks and months ahead to ensure these assurances are kept and will build on the success of both sites for the long term. The prime minister and I have been in close contact with the PSA Group and General Motors and they have been clear this deal is an opportunity to grow the Vauxhall brand, building on their existing strengths and commitments.feedback

My personal commitment and the commitment of this government will be unbounded to make sure the future of the workforce will be maintained.feedback

I will of course work with all the groups, including the trade unions, including the workforce, to make that case, if new owners there are to be, to those new owners.feedback

We discussed how PSA's approach is to increase market share and expand production rather than close plants. I was assured that the commitments to the plants would be honoured.feedback

There was also recognition that members of the Vauxhall pension fund will be no worse off.feedback

There was a recognition, which I emphasised, of the contribution to the performance of Vauxhall, of the two plants and indeed the other operations that they have in this country. They are efficient, they are successful and there was a clear recognition of that by PSA.feedback

One of the points the PSA executives made to me was that since the new management of PSA has been in place, they have taken some pride in having part of their strategy not to close plants.feedback

There is some way to go in discussions between GM and PSA but I was reassured by GM's intention, communicated to me, to build on the success of these operations rather than rationalise them. We will continue to be in close contact with GM and PSA in the days and weeks ahead.feedback

I want them (CEOs) to be paid in line with performance and one of the concerning aspects is not just has pay increased at the top ... but actually it has substantially outpaced the performance of the underlying shares.feedback

It is available for companies ... we're not going to make it happen. But I think what we do want to do is to give a stronger voice to workers on boards.feedback

This is very much with a view on the medium and long term horizon rather than a countervailing response to Brexit. It's not that kind of short-term stimulus.feedback

(Norton) had been declining with the declines in PC market share. This acquisition brings $660 million in revenue to the consumer business and returns it to longer sustainable growth.feedback

Nuclear energy was "an important part of the mix" for the U.K.'s energy supply. The government will now consider carefully all the component parts of this project and make its decision in the early autumn.feedback

What we are saying is that we have to crack down on those rogue landlords that exploit the immigration system by deliberately renting properties to people who don't have the right to be in this country.
