HC Deb 29 April 1958 vol 587 c16W
62. Mr. Slater

asked the President of the Board of Trade what are the prospects of light industry being brought into the Sedgefield rural district, particularly in those areas where redundancy is taking place at certain collieries.

Mr. Erroll

As Sedgefield is within reach of centres of manufacturing industry where further expansion is expected, my right hon. Friend is not seeking to introduce light industry into the district.
