HC Deb 09 February 1981 vol 998 cc264-5W
25. Mr. Edwin Wainwright

asked the Secretary of State for Industry what steps he has taken in the last year to introduce new industry to the South Yorkshire area.

Mr. Tebbit

The policies pursued by the Government over the past year are leading to a lower rate of inflation and thus contributing towards a revival of the confidence needed for industrial investment generally. In addition regional aid appropriate to the assisted area status of each part of South Yorkshire has continued to be available.
