§ Mr. BURNETT
asked the Minister of Labour the number of jute and linen factories, respectively, which have closed down in Scotland within the last two years?
§ Sir H. BETTERTON:
So far as I have been able to ascertain, five establishments have closed down in the linen trade, and eight in the jute trade within the last two years. I am informed also that three new jute factories have been opened during the period.
