HC Deb 25 November 1958 vol 596 cc18-9W
37. Mr. Ellis Smith

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will make a statement on the consultations which have taken place on industrial development or new concerns to be built within or near the City of Stoke-on-Trent.

Mr. J. Rodgers

There is nothing to add to the reply which my right hon. Friend gave to a similar Question by the hon. Member on 6th November, in which he said that although we have continued to bring to the attention of suitable firms the facilities available in north Staffordshire, including Stoke-on-Trent, none has yet agreed to set up there.
