asked the President of the Board of Trade whether he has considered a memorandum from the North Wales Post-War Development Committee drawing attention to the serious economic position of certain areas in North Wales; and what action he proposes to take.

I have considered the memorandum from the North Wales Post-War Development Committee, and I fully appreciate the serious economic position of certain parts of North Wales. In pursuance of the Government's plan for maintaining a high and stable level of employment, encouragement is being given to the establishment of new industries in all areas likely to suffer from heavy and prolonged unemployment. I am glad to say that some progress has already been made in the development of new projects in North Wales.
