HC Deb 30 July 1964 vol 699 cc387-8W
81. Mr. Pentland

asked the Secretary of State for Industry, Trade and Regional Development what recent representations have been made to him in regard to the building of a factory by the Tube Steel Investment Company at Washington, County Durham; what consultations he has had during 1964 with the firm concerned; and when work will commence on the building of the factory.

Mr. D. Price

My right hon. Friend has received no representations. Board of Trade officials were in touch with the company a short time ago. The company confirmed that it was still actively interested in development on this site but could not say when building would begin.
