§ Sir J. Eden
asked the President of the Board of Trade in how many cases in 1966 of which he has knowldege a company did not proceed with its expansion or development because the management 104W were not prepared to move to a development area; and whether he will assess the consequential economic loss to the nation.
§ Mr. Douglas Jay
Decisions not to proceed with expansions may be taken for various reasons. I do not accept that the Government's distribution of industry policy involves any economic loss to the nation.
