HC Deb 31 January 1977 vol 925 cc14-5W
Mr. Kilroy-Silk

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what future plans he has to improve employment prospects on Merseyside and in Kirkby and Ormskirk.

Mr. Alan Williams

As I explained in my answer on 19th January—[Vol. 924, c.235]—we shall continue to do everything we can to promote industrial development on Merseyside. Qualifying firms there also stand to benefit from the allocation of additional resources to encourage investment in industry which was announced by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer in December.
