HC Deb 02 May 1968 vol 763 c229W
32. Mr. Willey

asked the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what visits the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster has made to the Northern Region; what reports have been made pursuant to these visits; and what action has been taken.

Mr. Frederick Lee

I have now made seven visits to the Region, for discussions with local authorities and others in both the North East and Cumbria, to familiarise myself with local and regional problems and needs. The many issues raised with me have been pursued with the executive Departments involved, and the results communicated as appropriate to the bodies concerned.
