HC Deb 21 January 1981 vol 997 c169W
Mr. Kilroy-Silk

asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will make a statement on the results of his contacts with Courtaulds over the export of textile machinery.

Mr. MacGregor

The Department is in close contact with Courtaulds about the possibility that some regional development grant may be repayable as a result of factory closures and the subsequent sale or disposal of assets. However, details of any amounts to be repaid are a confidential matter between the company and the Department.
