HC Deb 13 November 1934 vol 293 cc1771-2W

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many inquiries have been made within the last six months for the establishment either by home or foreign capital of new industries in this country; and whether any of such industries have been or are being established in Lancashire?


A survey of industrial development is being prepared in respect of the year 1934 as a whole which will include particulars of the number of new factories opened during the year, the industries concerned and the localities in which the factories are situated. Precise information for any other period is not available, but my hon. Friend may rest assured that some of the new factories are being established in Lancashire.
