HC Deb 27 April 1967 vol 745 c326W
55. Mr. Fowler

asked the First Secretary of State and Secretary of State for Economic Affairs whether, in the light of paragraphs 118 and 119 of the first report to him of the West Midlands Economic Planning Council, he will give a rapid decision on its proposal that some financial incentive be offered to firms moving to overspill areas or new towns.

Mr. Shore

All the proposals put forward in the first report of the West Midlands Economic Planning Council are receiving careful attention, but the issues involved are complex and decisions will take some time.
