HC Deb 26 June 1956 vol 555 c29W
Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he is aware that spaces for factories are more extensive and rents arc comparably cheaper in the Highlands of Scotland than they are in and near the large towns and cities, and what steps he is taking to bring these facts to the attention of actual and potential industrialists and business people.

Mr. J. Stuart

I am aware of the attractions of industrial sites in the Highlands and my own and other Government Departments, in conjunction with the Scottish Council (Development and Industry), take every opportunity of bringing them to the notice of industrial firms.
