HC Deb 30 April 1969 vol 782 c226W
Mr. J. H. Osborn

asked the President of the Board of Trade if it is his intention to publish the results of his inquiry into the attitudes of firms to questions of plant location and into the experience of firms in new locations.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

The results will be made generally available but the form of publication will not be decided until nearer the time when the information has been collected and fully analysed, which will be towards the end of the year.

Mr. Patrick Jenkin

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will include in the survey being carried out by his Department of firm's attitudes to industrial location a survey of the later history of firms whose applications for industrial development certificates have been refused and which did not move to a new location.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

No. The survey is already well advanced and it is now impracticable to increase its scope.
