70. Mr. Timmons

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he is taking to develop employment in the Development Area of Lanarkshire.

Mr. H. Strauss

Everything practicable is being done to develop employment in Lanarkshire, as in other areas where there is a need. As the hon. Member knows, a great deal of new industry has been introduced since the war, and we are continuing to encourage suitable new enterprises to set up in the area.
