Letter: In Brief

Sir: The implied threat that unless the British government subsidises BMW to the tune of pounds 200m they will take their work elsewhere has to be unacceptable ("BMW tells Longbridge to fight Hungary for car", 10 March). However, it may well be that in the need to preserve jobs the Government will have to give way. If British taxpayers' money is to be used to support BMW, then BMW should be required to supply its British customers with its products at prices the same as those on the Continent.
