§ Mr. Albert Roberts
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment, concerning the dispersal of Government Departments, if he will give consideration to the Wakefield Metropolitan District as a suitable area, in view of above national average of unemployment.
§ Mr. Robert Sheldon
I have been asked to reply.
I think my hon. Friend is referring to dispersal as a result of the Hardman Report, on which I shall be making a statement as soon as possible. The claims of Wakefield, along with those of other places, will be considered before decisions are reached.
