HC Deb 09 February 1979 vol 962 c357W
Mr. Kilroy-Silk

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what further measures he proposes to take to stimulate industrial investment on Merseyside and in Kirkby.

Mr. Les Huckfield

We shall maintain our efforts to develop industry on Merseyside, including Kirkby, where regional incentives at the highest levels within Great Britain have been available since we made Merseyside a special development area. These incentives have secured the location in Merseyside of the high technology microelectronics project by GEC Fairchild Ltd. which is expected to create 1.100 jobs.
