HC Deb 01 February 1955 vol 536 c81W
50. Mr. Grimond

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland to arrange for some research and experiment into the provision of new types of light industry in the crofting counties.

Mr. Henderson Stewart

A considerable amount of research and experiment is already being carried out in connection with the principal Highland industries upon which the economy of the area mainly depends, and the Departments are willing to give whatever help they can to any industrialist who wishes to set up a new industry in the area.
