§ 25. Mr. John Timmons
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if, in view of the resentment in Lanarkshire with regard to the diversion of raw materials allocated to a certain firm at the Newhouse industrial estate, he will take steps to inquire into the matter and ensure that raw materials for Lanarkshire are used in Lanarkshire.
§ Mr. Snadden
If the hon. Member will be kind enough to give me details of the case he has in mind, I shall be glad to look into it.
§ Mr. Timmons
Is the Joint Under-Secretary not aware that there have been quite a lot of irregularities going on in many of these estates for a period of years, which I have already raised with various officials; and that, subsequent to putting down this Question, I found out at the week-end that there are other firms sending raw materials to works in the Midlands, and that I will give the names and the information required to the hon. Gentleman?
