HC Deb 09 November 1978 vol 957 cc310-1W
Mr. Terry Walker

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what steps are being taken to regenerate industry in the South-West region; and if he is satisfied with current industrial progress.

Mr. Cryer

The selective assistance schemes operated under section 8 of the Industry Act 1972 are available throughout the South-West in addition to the regional incentives to industry available

in the South-West assisted areas. Progress has been satisfactory given the current world-wide depression.
