§ Mr. Heddle
asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry, pursuant to the answer of 23 October, Official Report, column 160, if he has had any discussions with the pensions fund industry or local authority superannuation fund managers about the possibility of their providing capital to meet the demand for English Estates to build factories to the specific order of prospective tenants; and if he will make a statement.

No, Sir. But as my hon. Friend will appreciate. English Estates is required under statutory guidelines to secure the maximum possible level of private sector funding in all its development projects and seeks to do so.
