HC Deb 20 February 1985 vol 73 c454W
Mr. Jim Callaghan

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what further steps he is undertaking to assist industry in the Heywood and Middleton constituency.

Mr. Trippier

As a result of the recent review of regional industrial policy the travel-to-work areas covering the constituency now have intermediate area status and industry there is therefore eligible for selective financial assistance under section 7 of the Industrial Development Act 1982. In addition, that part of the constituency which was in the old Bury TTWA (Heywood) is eligible for assistance under the ERDF non-quota funds for closure areas, which were announced by my hon. Friend the Minister of State on 26 November last year.
