HC Deb 01 December 1966 vol 737 cc123-4W
28. Mr. James Johnson

asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs whether he has yet studied the report of the Yorkshire and Humberside Regional Economic Planning Council; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Albu

This review is a comprehensive survey of the Yorkshire and Humberside Region. It contains a wide variety of proposals involving action by people in the region as well as by Government. There must now be a proper opportunity for assessing the region's reactions to the survey, while full consideration will be given by Departments to the proposals addressed to the Government.
