HC Deb 05 May 1955 vol 540 cc149-50W
14. Mr. de Freitas

asked the President of the Board of Trade what plans have been considered in his Department for encouraging the establishment in Lincoln of light industries.

Mr. P. Thorneycroft

We try to encourage the establishment of light industries in all suitable localities, but there is very little unemployment in Lincoln and there are at the moment other areas with greater need.
