HC Deb 28 July 1960 vol 627 cc184-5W
Mr. Robens

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will consider scheduling the Seaton Delaval Employment Exchange area as a development district on the grounds of imminence and thus enable the county council plan for an industrial estate to proceed more effectively.

Mr. Maudling

A high rate of unemployment does not at present exist in Seaton Delaval, nor on present information do I expect it within such a period that it would be appropriate to list the area as a development district. But I am watching the position closely.
