HC Deb 29 November 1938 vol 342 c234
34. Mr. Gordon Macdonald

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether any account is kept by his Department of the setting up of new factories, with especial reference to Lancashire; and, if not, will he take the necessary steps to have such information compiled?

Mr. Stanley

I would refer the hon. Member to the annual Survey of Industrial Development. I am sending him a copy of the survey for 1937.
