HC Deb 10 February 1959 vol 599 c169W
55. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the President of the Board of Trade, in view of the decision of Nylon Spinners Limited not to site their new factory in the City of Aberdeen, what steps he has since taken to secure that factory for a site anywhere in North-East Scotland; and with what result.

Mr. J. Rodgers

As the hon. and learned Member will recall, my right hon. Friend reminded him on 22nd January that the Lord Provost had been informed by the firm that Aberdeen was not a suitable site. The reasons then given would apply equally to North-East Scotland.
