Manufacturing investment declines in q3 2015 although wider trends still positive

Fashion and textiles manufacturers followed the pattern exhibited by wider manufacturing with a slight decline in investment in q3 2015 with £56m invested by companies within the sector.  This has followed a pattern that has seen declines in quarter 3 in the previous two years.  However, the figures also put the industry on target to still enjoy sustained investment in line with 2011 and 2012 following the the recessionary pressures of 2010.
