FIRM ASKED TO DECIDE PLANS
FROM OUR CORRESPONDENT
LIVERPOOL, MARCH 10
An appeal has been made to the Standard Triumph Company for an early decision on their proposed new car factory at Liverpool. The company has had a site of 104 acres at Speke cleared more than a year for an £11m. car plant which would provide 4,500 jobs.
Mr J. N. M. Entwistle, chairman of the Merseyside Development Committee, making the appeal, said he was rather concerned about this valuable site lying idle in an area with 47,000 unemployed. The company has emphasized that it is a matter for boardroom decision, depending on production needs.
