HC Deb 20 July 1979 vol 970 cc898-9W
Mr. Shore

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what intra-regional preference in the issue of industrial development certificates he intends to grant to the inter city partnership areas in London and Birmingham.

Mr. David Mitchell

The partnership areas of inner London and inner Birmingham are continuing to enjoy priority, for the purposes of the industrial certificate control, ahead of the new and expanding towns and of the remainder of the non-assisted areas.
