HC Deb 28 June 1974 vol 875 cc57-8W
Mr. D. E. Thomas

asked the Secretary of State for Wales whether he will now extend the power to the Mid-Wales Development Corporation to cover other towns in Mid-Wales in addition to Newtown.

Mr. John Morris

I am concerned to ensure that there is adequate and effective machinery in rural Wales to ensure its development. I can make no decision on whether or not to extend the remit of the Mid-Wales Development Corporation until the review of progress now being undertaken by my Department has been completed.
