HC Deb 12 February 1963 vol 671 cc153-4W
69. Mr. Wade

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in the allocation of industrial development certificates with the object of encouraging industrial development in areas of high unemployment, he will grant development certificates in areas where the level of unemployment is not yet above average but whose local industries are declining and from which many employees are travelling daily to neighbouring towns and cities to find employment.

Mr. D. Price

Every application for an industrial development certificate is considered on its merits and all relevant factors are taken into account, including the local employment situation in the area in which development is proposed.

88. Mr. E. Taylor

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many industrial development certificates were granted for the London and South-East region and for the North-West region, respectively, in 1962.

Mr. D. Price

338 in the London and South Eastern region and 236 in the North Western region.
