HC Deb 23 April 1963 vol 676 cc1-2W
8. Mr. Gourlay

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that the production of linoleum is being transferred from a factory in Kirkcaldy to Staines, causing the loss of more than 500 jobs; and what steps he will take to provide alternative industry in the town.

Mr. D. Price

Yes. My right hon. Friends the Chancellor of the Exchequer and the President have announced new incentives which I am confident will give greater encouragement to the introduction and expansion of industry in Kirkcaldy and other localities of high and persistent unemployment.
