HC Deb 07 December 1938 vol 342 c1169
50. Mr. Kennedy

asked the Minister for the Co-ordination of Defence whether decisions have been reached regarding the extent to which rearmament contracts have been placed in Scotland, outside Glasgow and Clydeside; and whether firms in other industrial districts in Scotland have had an opportunity of undertaking contracts?

The Minister for the Co-ordination of Defence (Sir Thomas Inskip)

I regret that it is not possible, without an incommensurate amount of labour, to give the value of orders placed in particular areas under the rearmament programme. Considerable contracts, however, have been placed in Scotland outside the districts named.
