HC Deb 23 July 1958 vol 592 c39W
67. Mr. G. M. Thomson

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will state, for each of the factory building developments scheduled for Dundee, the approximate date for the start of the building operation; how many building workers are likely to be employed on each project; and for how long.

Mr. Erroll

Construction has started on two projects which should be completed by March next. A varying amount of detailed planning remains to be done on the other projects. I expect work to start on all but one of these by the end of this year. All should be ready for occupation by mid-1960. I can make no better estimate now than the employment of some 500 building workers over the period.
