§ Mr. Ness Edwards
asked the President of the Board of Trade if, in view of the growth of unemployment in the valleys of South Wales, he will consider rescheduling them under the Local Employment Act 1960.
§ Mr. Erroll
As the hon. Member is aware, some of the valleys are already included in the development districts of Ammanford and Garnant, Llanelly, and the Rhondda, where the full facilities of the Local Employment Act are available. I do not consider that I should be justified at present in making the facilities of the Act available elsewhere in the South Wales valleys, but I shall continue to keep a careful watch on the position there.
