HC Deb 11 July 1968 vol 768 c125W
Q8. Mr. Milne

asked the Prime Minister if he will take steps to set up an organisation similar in principle to Rem-ploy Limited to provide employment in the mining areas of Great Britain affected by pit closures.

The Prime Minister

No. I think we should gain more experience of the working of the massive steps which have already been taken to help development areas, and in particular the special steps to help areas affected by colliery closures announced by my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade on 14th November last, before considering the setting up of any new organisation. The reports I have seen of the effectiveness of the latest measures are encouraging.
