To ask the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry if he will set up an inquiry into the level of inward investment inquiries being referred by the regional office of his Department to the industrial development authorities in Cumbria.

No. All inward investor inquiries are sent routinely to all regions of the United Kingdom, where the regional development body, INWARD in the case of the north-west, maintains information on local site availability and conditions through regular contact with local authorities and other development bodies. Inquiries are then forwarded to those localities which have indicated their ability to meet the specific needs of the investor.
