Mr. Butler

To ask the Secretary of State for the Environment if he will publish figures available to him showing the progress of Warrington Runcorn new town development corporation is constructing, allocating and filling factory space.

Mr. Trippier

I refer my hon. Friend to the reply given by my hon. Friend the Member for Broxbourne (Mrs. Roe) on 28 March at columns299–300. In addition, for the current financial year to date, 106,730 sq ft of factory floor space has been completed, and 450,540 sq ft occupied; 268,000 sq ft is at present under construction. I am considering the corporation's proposals for a very limited number of further schemes of advance factory building.
