HC Deb 21 November 1961 vol 649 c107W
42. Miss Herbison

asked the President of the Board of Trade when work will begin on the construction of the advance factory at Shotts.

Mr. Erroll

I regret to say that further difficulties have arisen over the purchase of the site. I am still hoping that it will be possible to reach agreement with the vendors in the near future, but if not I shall have to consider what other steps can be taken to enable the necessary land to be acquired without undue delay.
