HC Deb 03 July 1968 vol 767 c233W
52. Mr. Rankin

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will state the number of firms in Hillington Estate which have ceased production; and what steps are being taken to bring them back into use.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

One firm has ceased production and vacated its factory, which has been re-let on a short lease from 1st August, 1968. A second factory will fall vacant in August and interest has already been expressed in it by another company. Every effort is made to find suitable tenants when factories fall vacant and I am happy to say that little difficulty has been experienced at Hillington.
