HC Deb 08 May 1973 vol 856 cc64-5W
Mr. Mudd

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will reconsider his refusal to grant permission to Penryn Borough Council to raise funds for the provision of roads and services to the town's new industrial estate to assist in the provision of jobs in an area of high local unemployment; and if he will instruct his regional officers to re-examine the application.

Mr. Graham Page

An annual borrowing allocation is made to Cornwall for its local schemes including the provision of industrial estates. For the current year the allocation is £2,386,000 and it is for the county council and the district councils jointly to determine how this should be utilised. I understand that arrangements have now been made for cost of these roads and services to be met from resources available locally.
