HC Deb 09 February 1981 vol 998 c266W
32. Mr. Greville Janner

asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether he will take steps to attract industry to the Leicester area.

Mr. MacGregor

The Government are already helping industry generally by a variety of policies. Since May 1979, assistance has been given to a number of projects in the Leicester area, and Leicester also benefits from the urban programme. But the particular attractiveness of Leicester as a place for industrial development will continue to depend mainly on the enterprise and good-work practices of management and workers in the area.
