HC Deb 21 October 1982 vol 29 cc206-7W
Mr. Parry

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment what study he had made of the impact of the proposed closure of the Lyons Maid factory on Merseyside; and if he will take special measures to alleviate the problem.

Mr. Heseltine:

Officials of the Merseyside task force have kept me fully informed of the discussions they have had about the proposed closure and its impact. There is already a wide range of Government assistance for individuals and firms available in the area.
