In my view the most significant event for us in 1967 was me devaluation of sterling, and I am quite sure the commercial vehicle industry will respond vigorously to the new challenge it presents us with in world markets.
In these frustrating days we have all too many "non-events". I sincerely hope that this will not in the ultimate apply to Britain's new approach to join the Common Market. If, following devaluation, we are eventually accepted as an essential addition to the Six, as we must be, then this re-opening of negotiations with the EEC will undoubtedly come to rank as the event of 1967.
