HC Deb 25 January 1966 vol 723 cc58-9W
Mr. Ted Fletcher

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the proposed closure of the British Railways workshops at Darlington, and the loss of 1,100 jobs, he will accelerate his efforts to steer new industries into the area.

Mr. Jay

We have been particularly successful in steering new industry into the Darlington area where there are now far more jobs in prospect for men than the numbers likely to be released by the closure of the Railway Workshops.
