HC Deb 15 November 1967 vol 754 c123W
95. Mr. Edwin Wainwright

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will now take steps to encourage new industries into the South Yorkshire area so that the number of unemployed in the Dearne Valley constituency will be greatly reduced.

Mr. Darling

The development areas must continue to have priority. I am, however, prepared to consider sympathetically applications for industrial development certificates for projects suited to the needs and resources of South Yorkshire.
