Mr. Owen

asked the President of the Board of Trade why his Department did not issue a certificate to Messrs. T. Wall and Sons to build a factory near Manchester, in view of the unemployment problem in and around that area; and whether he will make a statement.

Sir D. Eccles

Discussions between T. Wall and Sons, Limited, and my Department about a new factory in the North of England are continuing.
