§ Mr. David Reed
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment in which designated new towns control of the industrial areas is vested in authorities other than the relevant development corporation; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Channon
The main industrial areas providing employment at Aycliffe, Corby and Hatfield are not in the ownership of the new town authority. In several other new towns in England more recently designated there is substantial existing industry which the development corporations do not control.
