HC Deb 18 February 1972 vol 831 c187W
Mr. Carter

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will publish a breakdown of requests for industrial development certificates for the City of Birmingham over the past five years, together with the area of each case, how many were refused and the area of each refusal.

Mr. Anthony Grant

I regret the detailed information requested could not be made available without a disproportionate expenditure of time and money. If, however, the hon. Member cares to let me know of any particular point he has in mind I would be happy to try and help him.
