§ Mr. Elystan Morgan
asked the Minister of Technology if he will give an assurance that he will maintain the number of advance factories established in Wales within the next 12 months at the level of the number established in the 12 months ended 18th June, 1970.
§ Mr. Ridley
I cannot give such an assurance. How far it will be necessary in the next 12 months to embark on further advance factory building will depend on the rate at which factories already sanctioned are disposed of and the need for new ones.
