HC Deb 24 March 1953 vol 513 c79W
87. Mr. Patrick Maitland

asked the President of the Board of Trade what steps he proposes to encourage independent firms to erect factories for new industries in Lanarkshire provided the companies concerned put up their own capital.

Mr. H. Strauss

We shall be happy to consider with the companies concerned any proposals for building factories in places which need additional employment, whether in Lanarkshire or elsewhere, and to give all the help we can.
