HC Deb 10 May 1971 vol 817 c19W
Mr. Edward Lyons

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what steps he is taking to limit the spread of unemployment in the Yorkshire region, following the decision to appoint a receiver for the Tulketh Group and other closures.

Mr. John Davies

The Yorkshire region, including the wool textile industry, will benefit from the general economic measures which the Government has announced. As to any special help for the wool textile industry, I have nothing to add to the reply given by my hon. Friend the Minister for Industry to the hon. Member for Huddersfield, West (Mr. Lomas), on 30th November last.
