HC Deb 19 June 1969 vol 785 c129W
49. Mr. Willey

asked the Secretary of State for Economic Affairs what action the Northern Economic Planning Council has taken regarding Sunderland and the Wearside area.

Mr. Frederick Lee

I would refer my hon. Friend to my reply to his Question of 2nd April in which I explained that the Council in its Outline Strategy for the Northern Region up to 1981 has identified the Tyne/Wear Sub-Region as one of the areas of major economic growth.—[Vol. 781, c.123.]
