HC Deb 23 May 1950 vol 475 c1851
67. Mr. Goronwy Roberts

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will take action to expedite the building in the Nantlle Valley, Caernarvonshire, of a new factory, for which a grant from the Development Commission has been approved.

Mr. Bottomley

I understand that the Gwyrfai Rural District Council have already invited tenders in connection with this factory. The Board of Trade controller will, of course, continue to give any help and advice which the council may require.

Mr. Roberts

Is my hon. Friend aware that, although the finance necessary was made available some 12 months ago, building operations have not yet started, though the local authority has done everything required of it in this matter? Would he look into the position personally as we, in this area, believe that there are certain obstacles that can be removed regionally as well as locally?

Mr. Bottomley

I have looked into that and have hopes of speedy development.
