Mr. Geraint Morgan
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry whether he is aware of the worsening economic and employment situation in the Borough of Denbigh, as evidenced by the recent closure of two factories; and what proposals he has in mind for the attraction of alternative industries to the town.
§ Mr. John Davies
I am well aware of the likely effects of recent redundancies and those expected from the announced closure of a second firm in Denbigh. An official of the Department's Office for Wales has visited this firm and the premises, which are privately owned, have been suggested to an enquirer. The Department will continue to bring to the attention of suitable industrialists the financial incentives which the Government make available in the development area and the availability both of factory space and sites on the local authority's Colomendy Trading and Industrial Estate.
