HC Deb 08 February 1967 vol 740 c1633
19. Mr. Brewis

asked the President of the Board of Trade when he expects to announce a tenant for the new advance factory at Stranraer.

Mr. Jay

The Stranraer advance factory is now complete, and every effort is being made to find a suitable tenant.

Mr. Brewis

Is the right hon. Gentleman satisfied that this matter is being treated with sufficient urgency, in view of the high rate of unemployment?

Mr. Jay

Yes, Sir. We cannot guarantee to find a tenant by any fixed date, but over the whole of this programme there are extremely few factories left vacant for very long.
