HC Deb 04 May 1972 vol 836 c181W
Mr. Rose

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what steps he is taking towards increased capital works and industrial development in the regions of Strabane and Derry.

Mr. Channon

The Londonderry Area Plan enviages a continuing programme of heavy public investment in Londonderry. My right hon. Friend has recently caused this programme to be accelerated, with particular reference to the second river crossing, costing £8 million.

The West Tyrone Area Plan is under preparation. This will include plans for substantial public investment in the Strabane area.
