§ Mr. Tierney
asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he is satisfied with the progress of industry and its development in the West Midlands region; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Gregor Mackenzie
We are aware of the concern which has been expressed recently about the industrial situation in the West Midlands and this was discussed in the Adjournment debate on 23rd May. We are keeping a close watch on the position.
