asked the President of the Board of Trade what area of land has been required by new firms in the King's Lynn area, per man employed, for industrial development certificates granted from 1st January, 1964 to date; and what extra acreage will be needed on a similar basis to provide jobs for the expected population increase.

Applications for industrial development certificates specify the floor space to be covered by the buildings, and the numbers to be employed; they do not specify the total area of the site, and since this information is not required for the, purpose of determining applications it is not collected by the Board of Trade. It is the responsibility of the local planning authority to assess the amount of land required for industrial development having regard to the long-term needs of the King's Lynn area.
