HC Deb 09 July 1964 vol 698 c131W
64. Mr. Grey

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development if he will make a statement on the move of F. Perkins' factory to Spennymoor.

Mr. D. Price

F. Perkins Ltd. has leased from the Board of Trade a factory of 98,000 sq. ft. at Spennymoor, but it has not yet gone into production because it has not succeeded in reaching agreement with the trade unions over the wage rates to be paid at this factory.
