§ Mr. Pentland
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will state the progress made on the building of an advance factory at Chester-le-Street, the type of tenant expected to occupy the factory, and the date set for production to start.
§ Mr. Erroll
Some difficulty is being experienced in acquiring a site for this factory and this is delaying the start of construction. No prospective tenant has yet been found but the factory will be suitable for a wide range of industry.
