22. Mr. Buchan
asked the Minister of Technology what consideration has been given to establishing science-based industry in the Linwood area of Renfrew shire which could take advantage of the potentialities of the existing industrial complex there.
Is my hon. Friend not not aware that at the Board of Trade there is a pretty large file on this in my name? Will he keep in mind that this industrial complex is unique in Scotland in that it can serve a large variety of industry, but it lacks a science-based industry? Since private industry has failed to establish this, is it not time that we asked the public sector to do it under his Department?
