HC Deb 14 December 1950 vol 482 cc1326-7
20. Mr. Ian Harvey

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps are being taken to effect the geographical dispersal of industries vital to the life of the community and our armament production.

Mr. H. Wilson

Before approval is given to expansion schemes in any key industries, due consideration is given, among other things, to the desirability of dispersal. Plans exist for wider dispersal in the event of war.
