HC Deb 11 July 1968 vol 768 cc118-9W
31. Mr. J. H. Osborn

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he will now take in conjunction with local authorities including the Sheffield City Council, the Yorkshire and Humberside Planning Board and the East Midlands Planning Board, to attract large new industries into the South Yorkshire area.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

The development areas must continue to have priority for large projects seeking new locations, but the needs of other areas are recognised and applications for industrial development certificates will be considered on their merits.
