asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will enumerate in detail the action he has taken to comply with the recommendations of the Northern Industrial Group submitted to him in a memorandum.
§ Mr. Dalton
New Government factories have been and are being built in the North-East, and plans for further industrial building in this region, as soon as building labour becomes available, are well advanced. The Board of Trade regional organisation in the North-East has been strengthened, and I would refer my hon. Friend to the detailed answer given to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for East Leicester (Colonel Lyons) on 16th January. My Regional Controller is keeping, and will continue to keep, in close touch with the Northern Industrial Group.
