HC Deb 28 July 1967 vol 751 c293W
Mr. Michael Heseltine

asked the Minister of Technology what plans he has for implementing the recommendation of the South West Economic Planning Council appointed by the Government in 1965 relating to the advantages which the South-West can offer whenever the establishment of new nationally supported research centres is being considered, contained in paragraph 465 of the Council's recent report.

Mr. Benn

If any question of establishing such research centres were to arise I would of course consider the claims of various areas with great care.
