asked the Secretary of State for Industry, pursuant to his reply to the hon. Member for Edinburgh, East on November 18, when the special review of areas due to be non-assisted on 1 August 1982, having been downgraded by more than one step, will take place; and when the results will be announced.
My right hon. Friend the Secretary of State for Industry will be carrying out the special review to which the hon. Member refers in the early months of next year and he hopes to announce the results of the review in the spring.
