HC Deb 22 July 1980 vol 989 c688W
Mr. Wigley

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if, in view of the July unemployment figures, he will reconsider his decision to downgrade the Arfon and Dwyfor areas from being special development areas to ordinary development areas.

Mr. David Mitchell

I am not at present prepared to reverse the decision to make the Caernarvon and Pwllheli travel-to-work areas into development areas on 1 August. However, we shall continue to monitor developments there closely.
