HC Deb 22 June 1939 vol 348 cc2484-5W
Sir W. Jenkins

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will investigate the resources of South Wales, particularly the distressed areas where industries have closed down, with a view of setting up new industries to maintain the social amenities already in existence, which is a liability upon local authorities?

Mr. E. Brown

The resources of South Wales are kept under review from day to day by the Commissioner for the Special Areas, and his efforts continue to be directed towards the establishment of new industries in that area.
