HC Deb 22 July 1954 vol 530 c140W
79. Mr. P. Williams

asked the President of the Board of Trade what representations he has made to various firms expanding their undertakings in the North-East to acquire additional factory space in the Pallion Trading Estate, Sunderland.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

It would not always be in the public interest for firms in the North-East to establish units at Pallion instead of expanding where they are. In all suitable cases, firms are encouraged to consider establishing production in the Sunderland area, whether on the Pallion estate or elsewhere.
