§ 35. Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the President of the Board of Trade what progress he has made in the purchase of the site in Aberdeen for the advance factory announced by him last September; and if he will now specify the site and the use to which he plans to put it
§ The President of the Board of Trade (Mr. Douglas Jay)
I hope negotiations will shortly be concluded for the purchase of a 10-acre site on the Tullos Estate. This site will be large enough to accommodate both the advance factory announced last September and further factory development as required.
§ Mr. Hughes
Would my right hon. Friend expedite this matter, having regard to the fact that Aberdeen is a particularly attractive area and to the lack of unemployment, the housing facilities and general social amenities?
