The right hon. Gentleman had to cancel his visit to north Wales recently. However, I am sure that he had time to read the front page of tile Denbighshire Free Press, which outlined the job losses in Boral Edenhall and ML Lifeguard. Will he consider pressing for regional development status for large areas in Wales to obtain European money to put matters right?
