HC Deb 26 July 1939 vol 350 cc1482-3W
Mr. Leonard

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will state the estimated loss sustained by the Special Areas (Scotland) Commissioners Fund, Special Areas Reconstruction Association and Scottish Industrial Estates, Limited, through the failure of Scotcraft Furniture, Limited, at Hillington?

Mr. Wedderburn

As regards the Commissioner's contribution to this firm I would refer the hon. Member to the reply which my right hon. Friend gave to his question on 16th May. As regards the remainder of the question no estimate can presently be made of what losses, if any, may be sustained.
