HC Deb 12 February 1941 vol 368 cc1364-5
71. Mr. R. Gibson

asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether he is aware that there is idle plant in Scotland for the manufacture of all kinds of cardboard boxes and other paper and cardboard goods, abundant supplies for which are available in Scotland; that the appropriate personnel is unemployed; that samples of such goods required by Government departments are available for inspection only at Edinburgh; whether he will see that such samples are made available in Glasgow; and what steps he proposes to take to encourage Government departments to place orders for such goods in Scotland?

Captain Crookshank

I am making inquiries on this subject, and will communicate further with the hon. and learned Member as soon as I can.
