HC Deb 19 July 1962 vol 663 c82W
Mr. Bottomley

asked the President of the Board of Trade what percentage of all new factory building in the United Kingdom came to the northern region during the periods 1945–51 and 1951–61.

Mr. Erroll

The available figures are for Great Britain not the United Kingdom. The northern region's share of new industrial building given location approval was 10.5 per cent. in 1945 to 1951 and 61 per cent. in 1951 to 1961.
