HC Deb 06 November 1968 vol 772 c96W
Mr. Peter Mills

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps his Department is taking to see that the vacant M.P.J. factory at Bideford is sold so as to help solve the unemployment problem of that area and to safeguard public grants in a development area.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

This is a privately-owned factory and its sale is a matter for the owners. The Board's Regional Controller has taken every opportunity of drawing the attention of inquirers to the availability of this factory and will continue to do so.
