HC Deb 18 December 1958 vol 597 cc254-5W
Commander Pursey

asked the Paymaster-General what deferred building and other projects in Hull he will now approve, as the result of the Government's decision to ease the restrictions on capital expenditure, in order forthwith to reduce the increasing unemployment in Hull.

Sir I. Horobin

Individual building or other projects of the nationalised fuel industries are not subject to my noble Friend's approval, but he understands that the industries have not deferred any projects in Hull as a result of his general control over their capital investment programmes.
