HC Deb 01 December 1953 vol 521 c943
36. Mr. F. Willey

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will make a further statement on the future use of Messrs. Price Tailors Limited, Sunderland Trading Estates factory.

Mr. H. Strauss

No, Sir. I cannot add to the answer which my right hon. Friend gave on 12th November.

Mr. Willey

Will the Minister realize that this factory is now standing idle and that this is very disturbing to us in Sunderland? Is he aware that we should like to see some evidence of vigorous intervention by his Department?

Mr. Strauss

I can assure the hon. Member that everything possible has been done and that the company which he has named is receiving every help from the Board of Trade.
