§ The Prime Minister
I have at present no plans to do so, though I did visit parts of the region last month.
My hon. Friend the Minister of State, Department of Industry had a useful meeting with representatives of the North West Industrial Development Association on 2 February, and my right hon. Friend the Secretary of State 313W for Industry will be meeting industrialists and others in the North West on both Friday 12 February and Friday 19 February.
