HC Deb 31 July 1962 vol 664 cc52-3W
49. Mrs. Hart

asked the President of the Board of Trade what new steps he will now take to bring new industry to the Douglas and Coalburn area of Lanarkshire, in view of the further possible pit closures there.

Mr. D. Price

The facilities of the Local Employment Act continue to be available for projects in the Lesmahagow employment exchange area which includes Douglas and Coalburn. In addition, as my right hon. Friend told the House on 26th July, he has decided to build an advance factory in the Larkhall-Lesmahagow-Douglas area.
