HC Deb 08 April 1968 vol 762 cc191-2W
Mr. Speed

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he is taking to encourage new industry to move into North-East Warwickshire to provide employment for redundant miners.

Mr. Dell

The development areas, parts of which are likely to be seriously affected by colliery closures, must continue to have priority. Subject to this, the needs of places outside the development areas, including North-East Warwickshire where employment may be affected by colliery closures, will be taken into account in considering applications for industrial development certificates.
