Q7. Mr. Ted Fletcher
asked the Prime Minister in view of the continuing high level of unemployment in the North-East Region, what steps he is taking to coordinate the activities of the Board of Trade, the Department of Employment and Productivity, the Ministry of Technology and the Ministry of Power, with a view to establishing new industries in the Region.
§ The Prime Minister
My right hon. Friends already work very closely together on all matters affecting the North East and no new measures of co-ordination are needed.
