HC Deb 17 March 1967 vol 743 c175W
Mr. Clegg

asked the President of the Board of Trade what help he is proposing to give to those areas outside the development areas whose unemployment figure is regularly more than 3 per cent. above the national average.

Mr. Jay

In so far as industrial development is concerned, the problems of those localities whose unemployment figures are well above the national average, but whose circumstances do not justify designation as a development area, can best be met through a liberal use of industrial development certificates.
