HC Deb 15 November 1971 vol 826 cc56-7W
Mr. Bottomley

asked the Prime Minister how many of Her Majesty's Ministers have visited Teesside since 18th June, 1970; and in view of the increase in the number of unemployed, particularly among teenagers, if he will himself make an official visit.

The Prime Minister

Thirteen. I have at present no plans to visit Teeside: but I met representatives of the North-East Development Council in Catterick on 24th September when the question of unemployment in the North-East generally was discussed.
