HC Deb 12 February 1973 vol 850 cc221-2W
31. Mr. Femyhough

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if, in view of the persistent high level of unemployment in development and special development areas, he will consider establishing Government-owned and managed factories in the said areas.

Mr. Anthony Grant

No, though, as the right hon. Member will know, we provide many factories for others to occupy and have recently announced a major new programme for the construction of advance factories.
