In Chapter 4 we saw that the Distribution of Industry Act of 1945 effectively carried out the recommendations of the Barlow minority report: there was to be a strong policy of steering industrial growth from the more prosperous regions to the depressed areas of the 1930s, to be accomplished not only by positive inducements to locate in these latter areas, but also by negative controls over the location of new industry, and over extensions to existing industry, in other areas. This control applied only to manufacturing industry, though more rapid growth was in the tertiary or service sector of employment; and this was not at all remedied until the control of ofﬁce development in 1964.
