HC Deb 20 December 1967 vol 756 c423W
107. Mr. Albert Roberts

asked the President of the Board of Trade how many industrial development certificates have been refused in the Yorkshire and Humberside region during the past two years.

Mr. Darling:


Mr. Wallace

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will ensure that locally based industries in the City of Norwich, wishing to expand within the area, receive prompt granting of industrial development certificates in order to ease considerable local unemployment problems.

Mr. Darling:

Subject to the needs of the Development Areas, applications for industrial development certificates for expansion in Norwich by local firms are already treated sympathetically, and I am not aware of any delay in dealing with them.
