HC Deb 10 February 1938 vol 331 c1222
3. Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Minister of Labour what progress is being made consequent upon the formation of a site company for Lancashire?

Mr. E. Brown

I have received formal representations from five areas in Lancashire and Cheshire for the application of Section 5 of the Special Areas (Amendment) Act, 1937, and I understand that other representations may be expected in the course of a few days. Steps will be taken to deal with these representations as expeditiously as possible.

Mr. Davies

May we take it that the Department of the right hon. Gentleman will assist the site company to make a start as soon as possible?

Mr. Brown

We are doing everything we can to that end.
