This lamentable inadequacy is patent in the multi-billion-pound deficit we run annually by, among other things, importing fruit and vegetables native to our own climate. But it extends way beyond that. What we need is a general level of skill, training and investment sufficient to yield cutlery, clothes pegs, furniture, bicycles and all the rest of the paraphernalia we use and buy. Transport costs give home industry a built-in advantage. Our textile and clothing industry has shown that we can do it. But what about the rest?
