HC Deb 05 February 1948 vol 446 cc323-4W
Mr. Chetwynd

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he will make a statement on the future of No. 2, M.P.R.D., Eaglescliffe, Stockton-on-Tees.

Mr. H. Wilson

As my hon. Friend is aware agreement was reached in principle for Morris Motors Ltd., to take over this factory when the work for the Ministry of Supply comes to an end. The firm have, however, now decided not to proceed with their application and efforts are therefore being made to find some kind of suitable alternative work which can be fitted into these premises.
