In the Great Harwood area, which includes Rishton and Clayton-le-Moors, the rate of unemployment is not high. But projects to be located in this area will be eligible for the facilities to which the hon. Member refers, if they would draw labour from neighbouring places on the D.A.T.A.C. list.

I am very interested to hear that reply, but as that information is not contained in the booklet which is being sent to firms, nor the information that certain other urban districts attached to Accrington will be able to obtain these facilities, could the right hon. Gentleman issue a revised copy of the booklet, containing this further information?

I will certainly consider that.
