§ Mr. Chichester-Clark
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer what further consideration has been given to the possibility 336W of establishing Government Departments, research facilities and adjuncts of Government Departments in Northern Ireland.
§ Mr. MacDermot
As I have told the hon. Member, in selecting locations for Government Establishments which are being moved we do give special consideration to the claims of areas, including Northern Ireland, which need additional employment. We shall continue doing this. But I cannot hold out any hope of a move to Northern Ireland in the near future.
