HC Deb 25 October 1973 vol 861 c702W
Mr. Roy Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will reconsider his decision not to confer development area status on the county borough of Newport, Monmouthshire.

Mr. Anthony Grant

Since unemployment has continued to fall and registered vacancies to rise, I have nothing to add to the answer I gave to the hon. Member on 9th May.—[Vol. 856, c.145.]
