ABSTRACT
The article presents views of several personalities on the bailout scheme by the European Union or the British government relative to its automobile industry. One person prefers to put funding into rail vehicle manufacturing because of overseas demand for new trains. Another one states that bailouts should be on commercial terms to protect taxpayers. On the other hand, a person believes that Great Britain has the opportunity for innovation in the transport industry.
