HC Deb 10 December 1964 vol 703 c215W
58. Mr. Derek Page

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will bear in mind the need of expanding towns when considering the granting of industrial development certificates to firms in the South-East area.

Mr. Jay

I must give first priority to the needs of the development districts. Subject to that I am prepared to look sympathetically at applications from London firms for i.d.c.'s in Expanded Towns which need additional employment.
