asked the Secretary of State for Industry how many firms have been referred by his Department to (a) the North-East and (b) Merseyside in (i) the last year and (ii) the last six months.

I regret that information in the form requested is not available. However, my Department provides information about locations in the assisted areas to firms, and during the 12 months up to 30th April 1977 80 firms from outside the Northern Region visited locations in the North-East and 42 firms from outside the North-West Region visited locations in Merseyside. For the six months up to 30th April 1977, the corresponding figures were 45 and 23, respectively.
