HC Deb 15 December 1975 vol 902 c477W
Mr. Cant

asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether he will now withdraw intermediate area status from Cheshire in view of the fact that it is now the fastest—growing county in Great Britain with an economic growth rate equal to twice the national average.

Mr. Gregor Mackenzie

No. I am not aware of any official statistics which would support my hon. Friend's contention about the economic growth rate in Cheshire.
