HC Deb 30 July 1971 vol 822 cc193-4W
Mr. Bray

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many of the six vacant factories in the borough of Bacup, of which he has been told, were built prior to 1871; and what were the respective years in which the remainder were constructed.

Mr. Anthony Grant

I understand that five were built before 1871, but two of these were extended in the 1920s. One was built in the 1920s in replacement of much older premises on the site.
