HC Deb 12 July 1972 vol 840 c377W
Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what steps is he taking to assist in the provision of alternative employment at Newport, Monmouth shire, to offset the loss of jobs due to the proposed closure of Stewart and Lloyds Tube Works and the redundancies at Whiteheads Steel Works, British Aluminium Limited and Black Clowson Limited.

Mr. Anthony Grant

Newport, with its excellent communications network, has many advantages, and will be well placed to take advantage of the proposed new arrangements for regional assistance.
