While thanking the right hon. Gentleman for that reply, may I ask if he will be prepared to discuss with me the question of industrial capacity for Tamworth, bearing in mind that other Departments are concerned, notably Agriculture? Would he be prepared to consider asking his regional officers to enter into a discussion with the local authority concerned?

We are always ready to enter into discussions of that kind, but I think the hon. Member will recognise that Tamworth is doing pretty well.
