HC Deb 02 February 1954 vol 523 c187
23. Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps are being taken to approve a site for a new trades college in Dundee.

Mr. J. Stuart

I have asked the Dundee Corporation to consider building a new technical college, and the whole question, including that of a suitable site, is now being examined by them.

Mr. Thomson

Will the right hon. Gentleman assure the House that his Department will expedite this matter as much as possible in view of its importance to employment in Dundee and to productivity in Scotland as a whole?

Mr. Stuart

I agree with the hon. Member, and I assure him that we shall help actively.
