HC Deb 06 December 1971 vol 827 cc207-8W
57. Mr. Bagier

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what plans he has for providing similar aid to existing industry in the development and special development areas wishing to expand as that which is available for incoming industry to those regions.

Mr. J. Davies

I am willing to consider any relevant evidence, but there are very real difficulties about the proposal and reliable estimates of its effects are not available.
