HC Deb 15 September 1939 vol 351 c906W
Mr. Trevor Cox

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer, when he expects to make loan facilities available to industries to assist in the establishment of new industrial undertakings in areas of heavy unemployment?

Sir J. Simon

In present circumstances the Government have come to the conclusion that there is no longer any justification for making special loan facilities available in particular areas and accordingly the Loans Facilities Bill will not be proceeded with.
