asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will consider extending development area status to cover the whole of the Ogmore constituency, to assist manufacturing companies like Toye Kenning and Spencer of Nantymoel to continue their expansion programme and Offrex Engineering Works at Llangeinor to continue in the area.

We are currently reviewing the assisted area grading of those areas, including the Port Talbot travel-to-work-area, which may be affected by the British Steel Corporation's proposals. An announcement will be made as soon as possible after BSC has decided upon the ways in which to implement the necessary reductions in capacity.
