HC Deb 09 July 1959 vol 608 c142W
31. Miss Herbison

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he has completed his inquiries into the question of the right to arbitration by tenants of factories in Scottish industrial estates; and if he will make a statement.

Sir D. Eccles

Yes. The Government think it would be inappropriate to deal only with tenants of Board of Trade factories and not of other industrial premises in Scotland. Legislation would be necessary to remove the difference between English and Scottish law in this respect. There would only be a case for this if there was a widespread demand for such a change in respect of private as well as of public property.
