HC Deb 22 April 1947 vol 436 cc86-7W
72. Mr. Daggar

asked the President of the Board of Trade the degree of progress made regarding the erection of the 10 factories recommended by the committee presided over by the hon. Member for Gower (Mr. Grenfell).

Mr. Belcher

I am sending my hon. Friend a copy of the reply which I gave on 24th March to my hon. Friend the Member for Neath (Mr. D. Williams) informing him of the position then of the nine factories under construction. Since then the two factories at LIwynypia and those at Ammanford and Aberbargoed have made good progress. Steelwork is a quarter complete at Ponthenry and has been started at Tumble, at Garnan, and at one of the Ferndale factories. The second factory at Ferndale is the only one where steelwork has not yet been started but the foundations are nearly complete. It has been decided to erect the tenth factory at Aberdare and work should begin shortly.
