HC Deb 17 December 1959 vol 615 c232W
112. Mr. Wingfield Digby

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware of the shortage of industries in Dorset in which wage rates are up to the national average; and whether he will take steps to attract to Dorset new industries in which higher rates are paid.

Mr. Erroll

In view of the higher rates of unemployment in other places, special steps to attract new industries to Dorset would not be justified.
