HC Deb 24 June 1965 vol 714 c234W
Mr. S. O. Davies

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he will cause an inquiry to be made into the depopulation of the old industrial valleys of South Wales, with a view to rectifying this loss to an area which has made in the past a notable contribution to the economic and cultural well-being of the country.

Mr. James Griffiths

The Question of the future of the valley communities is a very important part of the study of industrial South Wales on which the Welsh Planning Board has been engaged and on which I hope to receive a report from the Board soon.
