§ 18. Colonel J. R. H. Hutchison
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many inquiries for industrial space at 34W East Kilbride have been received; and how many and of what type have been approved.
Inquiries for industrial space at East Kilbride have been received by the New Town Development Corporation from 20 firms. Three of these firms have not pursued their negotiations with the Corporation. Of the remaining 17, one—a factory for the production of electrical appliances—has been approved for immediate development while some others are at a very advanced stage of negotiation and final decisions are likely to be reached shortly.
