§ 13. Mr. James Griffiths
asked the Minister of Labour when he will be able to announce his proposals for dealing with the distressed areas which are outside the scheduled Special Areas; and whether he can indicate when the legislation dealing with the matter will be introduced?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I am not yet in a position to make any announcement in this matter, but I can assure the hon. Member that there will be no avoidable delay.
