HC Deb 11 July 1968 vol 768 c118W
32. Mr. Patrick Jenkin

asked the President of the Board of Trade, whether it is the Government's policy to give financial assistance under the Local Employment Acts and the Industrial Development Act in order to prevent the closure of an existing factory.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

Yes, subject to the terms of the legislation including the provision in Section 4 of the Local Employment Act, 1960, that in accordance with a recommendation of the Advisory Committee, the Board are satisfied that there are good prospects of the undertaking ultimately being able to be carried on successfully without further assistance.
