Industry influence?

From the Independent's business diary:

"Who is the most influential man in British manufacturing? Steve Radley, director of policy at the manufacturing organisation EEF, must be in with a shout for the title. He launched a high-profile campaign yesterday morning for an extension of the car scrappage scheme – within hours, Lord Mandelson had granted his wish."


This is an informal blog about manufacturing and the economy written by EEF's policy and representation staff. While it is written from an EEF perspective, contributions should not be taken as formal statements of EEF policy, unless stated otherwise. Nor does it cover all the issues on which we campaign - you can check these out in more detail at our main site.

We welcome and encourage comments, but we reserve the right to remove any that are offensive or irrelevant. We are not responsible for the content of external internet sites.
