HC Deb 25 January 1982 vol 16 c237W
37. Mr. Barry Jones

asked the Secretary of State for Wales if, in view of the loss of 8, 135 direct jobs at the British Steel Corporation works, Shotton, Clwyd since January 1980 and the current high number of jobless citizens in the Deeside travel-to-work area, he will meet the Alyn and Deeside district council and chief officer as requested by Mr. W. Rogers, chief executive; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Nicholas Edwards

I look forward to arranging further discussions on the economic situation in Clwyd as a whole with representatives of both county and district councils.
