asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Works and Buildings (1) what proportion of equipment for hostel camps in Scotland has been allocated to Scottish furniture manufacturers;
(2) how many Glasgow furniture manufacturers have been invited to tender for the provision of hostel camp equipment during the past six months?
§ Mr. Hicks
I regret that it is not possible without undue expenditure of labour to obtain the figures which would be necessary to give the hon. Gentleman a full answer. I can say, however, that orders for considerable quantities of furniture for hostel camps in Scotland have been placed with Scottish manufacturers.
