HC Deb 28 November 1938 vol 342 c31
65. Mr. R. Gibson

asked the First Commissioner of Works what is the proportion of Scottish firms engaged in subcontracting work for the erection of the Government factory at Bishopton compared with firms in other parts of the country; and whether he will take steps to see that Scotland has an adequate share of this work?

The First Commissioner of Works (Sir Philip Sassoon)

In so far as the main building and civil engineering contracts for the erection of the factory at Bishopton are concerned, all sub-contracts, with one exception, are held by Scottish firms.
