Factory decline

Sir Does Hamish McRae ("The other problem with jobs bought from the Japanese", 31 January) not realise that it is precisely because manufacturing jobs are of less worth than the more highly paid "higher-skilled" positions in finance, marketing and advertising that UK manufacturing has declined to its current level? Without manufacturing what would he propose to advertise, market or finance?
