§ Sir G. Owen
asked the Minister without Portfolio (1) whether any plan has been formulated for the location of new industries in North Wales so that these new industries may begin to function immediately after the cessation of hostilities;
(2) whether industrialists now engaged on war work in Government-owned factories are being encouraged to acquire these factories for peace production and thus to provide employment in those areas after the war.
§ Sir W. Jowitt
I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the statement made by my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade in the Debate on Location of Industry on 8th December last, to which I have nothing at present to add.
