HC Deb 05 February 1985 vol 72 cc485-6W
38. Mr. Beith

asked the Secretary of State for Employment what advice he received from the centre for urban and regional studies at Newcastle university about the placing of Amble in a travel-to-work area extending across the whole of the Alnwick district council area.

Mr. Alan Clark

The centre for urban and regional development studies collaborated with the Department in last year's review of the travel-to-work areas and in developing the methodology described in the supplement to the September 1984 edition of Employment Gazette, a copy of which is in the Library. The new travel-to-work area of Alnwick and Amble is smaller than the previous travel-to-work area of Alnwick which also contained the Amble area.
