HC Deb 07 March 1963 vol 673 cc95-6W
Mr. Symonds

asked the Parliamentary Secretary for Science, as representing the Lord President of the Council, what arrangements have been made for the Lord President to visit West Cumberland in view of the high and rising rate of unemployment in the area.

Mr. Denzil Freeth

As the Prime Minister told the House on 22nd January, in reply to a Question by the hon. Member for Workington (Mr. Peart), the special responsibilities undertaken by the Lord President relate to the Counties of Northumberland and Durham and the North Riding of Yorkshire. No arrangements for him to visit West Cumberland are being made.
