HC Deb 22 June 1939 vol 348 c2421
37. Mr. Hubert Beaumont

asked the Minister of Labour whether in agreeing to the erection of a new factory for the processing and manufacture of cloth at Moorside, Workington, he recognised that the manufactured products of this new mill would be in direct competition with mills already operating in the West Riding; that the financial assistance afforded to the new factory would operate harshly and unfairly against established mills; that this being a skilled industry the transference of skilled workers would become necessary; and whether he will, in consultation with the Commissioner for the Special Areas, review the proposal to establish this factory?

Mr. E. Brown

I would refer the hon. Member to the reply given yesterday to a similar question on this subject.

Mr. Beaumont

In view of the fact that it is entirely different from the previous question, may I ask the right hon. Gentleman for a reply to the question on the Paper?

Mr. Brown

The best answer I can give is to refer the hon Member again, to the previous reply.
