HC Deb 24 June 1966 vol 730 cc168-9W
Mr. Gwilym Roberts

asked the President of the Board of Trade whether, in view of the threatened contraction of labour by Vauxhall Motors Limited at Luton and Dunstable, and the rapidly expanding population, he will issue industrial development certificates to new industries seeking to come to South Bedfordshire.

Mr. Darling

The general shortage of labour in Bedfordshire seems likely to continue and I see no justification at this stage for a relaxation in the issue of industrial development certificates.
