HC Deb 01 February 1984 vol 53 c250W
38. Mr. Ashby

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will make more resources available to the English Industrial Estates Corporation.

Mr. Trippier

I cannot announce details of the provision and allocation of resources for EIEC's next forward development programme until the Supply Estimates for the 1984–85 financial year have been laid before Parliament. However, I can say that I am hopeful that sufficient resources will be found to allow EIEC to expand the programme above the levels achieve in recent years.
