§ Mr. Litterick
asked the Secretary of State for Industry what action he proposes to encourage the location of new service industries in the West Midlands; and if he will make a statement.
Mr. Alan Williams
Grants under Section 7 of the Industry Act 1972 are available to encourage the establishment and growth of service industry projects within the Oswestry Intermediate Area. Throughout the West Midlands the incentives that we are providing to encourage investment in manufacturing industry should have secondary effects on employment in services.
