HC Deb 15 June 2000 vol 351 c698W
Mr. Beith

To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will make a statement about the Berwick Task Force following the closure of the Pringle's knitwear factory. [124610]

Mr. Caborn

The Task Force, set up after the announcement of the closure of the Pringles knitwear factory in Berwick has met on a number of occasions since July 1998, the latest meeting being held this week. A consultancy firm has been engaged to work with the Task Force and the local authority to help establish a comprehensive regeneration strategy for the town, and a bid for further Single Regeneration Budget funding is likely.
