HC Deb 02 May 1972 vol 836 c85W
70. Mr. Tilney

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what further plans he has for promoting the reduction of unemployment on Merseyside.

Mr. Chichester-Clark:

The extensive measures we have introduced to encourage industrial expansion, especially in the development areas, should improve the employment prospects of Merseyside. My right hon. Friend the Minister for Industrial Development will continue to draw the attention of suitable firms to the advantages of expansion there.
