Mr. Peter Thomas

Advance factory building will continue to be a major element in the Government's policy of developing the growth towns. The strengthening of the infrastructure of the area including the improvement of road communications will continue. The full range of Local Employment Act assistance is also available to industry in mid-Wales. Other forms of help are given by the Development Commission.
