24. Major Neven-Spence

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he can make any statement as to the progress which has been made in the development of the Scottish industrial estate at North Hillington?

Mr. Elliot

I am informed that since its acquisition in June, 1937, 45 factories and five sites have been let on the North Hillington estate to 50 undertakings and that over 150 applications and inquiries are at present before the Industrial Estates Company. Six factories have been completed and 85 are under construction. Nine hundred persons are employed on the work of developing the estate and building factories and the contracts for the work amount to £650,000.
