HC Deb 07 May 1968 vol 764 c61W
Q12. Mr. George Jeger

asked the Prime Minister whether he will appoint a Minister with special responsibilities for encouraging the industrial development of Yorkshire.

The Prime Minister

The House already knows of the wide responsibilities of my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs both for the co-ordination of industrial policy and for regional policy. I do not think that a further appointment as suggested by my hon. Friend could be justified.
