Abstract

Ted Heath took the UK into the then EEC so that its businesses might access a thus greatly enlarged home market. However, dropping the tariff barriers around the UK led, by painful stages, to the virtual elimination of the UK motor industry by Continental competitors. It suffered from atrocious industrial relations, poor productivity and quality, and products that were not always up to modern design standards.
