HC Deb 01 December 1967 vol 755 c186W
Dr. Gray

asked the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs (1) whether the Eastern Regional Planning Council will classify the Yarmouth-Lowestoft area as a sub-region and develop it as such;

(2) whether the East Anglian Planning Council will treat Great Yarmouth in planning as a growth point.

Mr. Alan Williams

The East Anglia Economic Planning Council is at present considering the medium and long-term strategy for the Region. What they will say in their Study, which they intend to publish next year, is a matter for them, and it would not be appropriate for me to anticipate their views, but I would expect that the future of Great Yarmouth in the regional context will be one of the many questions that the Council will take into account.
