HC Deb 28 October 1952 vol 505 cc194-5W
Mr. Hamilton

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the need to attract more miners to the rapidly developing Fife coalfield, he will consult the Minister of Labour and others who may be able to help in the establishment of new light industry in the coalfield, which would provide employment for the female community.

Mr. H. Strauss

The Board of Trade are always in touch with the Ministry of Labour and other Departments on the need for new industry in particular areas, and we will certainly take into account the question raised by the hon. Member.
