HC Deb 04 May 1954 vol 527 c9W
Mr. Pryde

asked the President of the Board of Trade if his attention has been called to the intended closure of the Imperial Chemical Industries plant at Roslin, Midlothian; and if his Department will therefore consider the advisability of introducing light industry into Midlothian.

Mr. H. Strauss

I am aware of the impending closure of this factory. The Government will continue to bear in mind the position in the developing coalfield area of Midlothian.
