§ 9. Sir William Jenkins
asked the Minister of Labour whether there are any prospects of new industries in the Brynamman area, where all the tinworks and coal mines have closed down, and where there is still a large number of unemployed workers ready and willing to work?
§ Mr. E. Brown
I regret that I am not aware of any new industrial undertaking which is likely to be established at Brynamman.
§ Sir W. Jenkins
Have any steps been taken to make inquiries to see whether something cannot be done for this area?
§ Mr. J. Griffiths
In the meantime will the right hon. Gentleman consult the Lord Privy Seal on the possibility of some orders for air-raid shelters being diverted to works in this area which are likely to be able to deal with them?
§ Mr. Godfrey Nicholson
Is the right hon. Gentleman in touch with any organisation which could help him to get new industries set up by refugees from the Continent who have special technical knowledge?
§ Mr. E. J. Williams
Does not the Minister realise that concentration on the Treforest Trading Estate is militating against the prospect of other parts of the area?
