HC Deb 22 December 1983 vol 51 c353W
Mr. Maxwell-Hyslop

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry why his Department's document intituled "Regional Industrial Policy" specifically invites comments to be sent in, but omits to say by what date this should be done if they are to influence his policy decisions

Mr. Trippier

The White Paper on regional industrial development explicitly invites the submission by 31 May 1984 of views on specific issues: these will be taken into account before decisions are made on those issues. The document entitled "Regional Industrial Policy — some economic issues" deals with some of the relevant economic issues which underlie the policy considerations and invites comments in a more general sense.
