HC Deb 09 December 1958 vol 597 cc43-4W
119. Mr. Harold Davies

asked the President of the Board of Trade to how many firms he has suggested Kidsgrove, North Staffordshire, as a convenient site for new industries; and if he will give the list of factories sited there since 1945,

Mr. Rodgers

Yes, but I understand that all the other pits in the district will continue to be worked, and it is first necessary to know how far these pits are likely to take on the miners now employed at the Ouston East Pit. When this information is available my right hon. Friend will consider what action should be taken.
