HC Deb 23 March 1971 vol 814 c108W
Mr. Cledwyn Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if he has now completed his study of An Economic Strategy for North West Wales published by the Welsh Council on 25th January, 1971; what conclusions he has arrived at; and what action he proposes to take in view of the high unemployment in the area, including Anglesey, where 9.6 per cent. of the insured population are out of work.

Mr. Peter Thomas

I am still considering this very comprehensive Report, but I hope to reply to the Council shortly. Every effort will continue to be made to increase the attractiveness of North West Wales, including Anglesey, to new industry.
