asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he can give an estimate of the saving in central and local government staffing which will be achieved by the suspension of industrial development certificates.

Suspension will provide immediate savings in my Department worth over £100,000 a year and a further saving of some £30,000 a year from August 1982 when the control was due to be reimposed in areas losing assisted area status.The local government staff saving cannot be quantified.
