HC Deb 26 February 1970 vol 796 cc1374-5
11. Mr. Ellis

asked the Secretary of State for Employment and Productivity when she next proposes to hold an area manpower and employment conference.

Mrs. Castle

In Birmingham on Friday, 8th May, 1970.

Mr. Ellis

Would my right hon. Friend consider the advisability of holding one of these conferences in Bristol, which is a considerable area that sets the employment pattern over a wide area? It has diversity of industry and would be suitable.

Mrs. Castle

I very much hope that it will be possible to hold such conferences in other parts of the country and I will bear in mind the suggestion made by my hon. Friend.
