HC Deb 30 May 1963 vol 678 c171W
Mr. Pentland

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will state the progress made on the building of an advance factory at Chester-le-Street, the type of tenant expected to occupy the factory, and the date set for production to start.

Mr. Erroll

Some difficulty is being experienced in acquiring a site for this factory and this is delaying the start of construction. No prospective tenant has yet been found but the factory will be suitable for a wide range of industry.
