§ 1. Mr. Dempsey
asked the President of the Board of Trade when the new advance factory at Coatbridge is likely to be completed; and if he has found a suitable tenant to occupy it.
§ The Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade (Mr. John Rodgers)
It is expected that the structure will be completed in August, 1960. A suitable tenant has not yet been found.
§ Mr. Dempsey
When looking for a suitable tenant, will the Minister bear in mind the need to induce someone who can provide reasonable employment for large numbers, in view of the high unemployment rate?
§ Mr. Rodgers
We will certainly bear that point in mind. At the present moment, unfortunately, we have no one really interested in it.
