HC Deb 24 February 1965 vol 707 cc122-3W
Mr. Barnett

asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs if he will take steps to ensure that members of the Regional Economic Council for the North-West visit areas like those in the constituency of Heywood and Royton which are suited, by their close proximity to Manchester and of housing potential, to helping to stop the drift to the South.

Mr. William Rodgers

I am sure that we can leave the chairman and members of the Council to deal with this very important consideration.
