HC Deb 26 March 1959 vol 602 cc165-6W
74. Mr. Oliver

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he is aware that the flax industry at Ripley has been lying dormant for a considerable time; and what steps are being taken to find an industrial user for these premises.

Mr. J. Rodgers

None. The factory is now privately owned, and it is for the present owner to take any necessary steps.
