§ 78. Mr. McInnes
asked the President of the Board of Trade the extent of the unsatisfied demand by industrial concerns for accommodation in industrial estates in Glasgow and the West of Scotland.
§ Mr. Rhodes
There have been over 200 inquiries this year about existing space or new building on industrial estates in the Scottish Development Area. In 26 cases the project has been approved and 33 cases are still under consideration. Available space on industrial estates in Glasgow and the West of Scotland is being rapidly absorbed, but we are always prepared to consider erecting a factory for a firm whose case satisfies the necessary tests.
