§ 80. Mr. Wolrige-Gordon
asked the President of the Board of Trade how many advance factories have been allocated in Scotland since March 1966 to manufacturing companies; how many are now in production; and what percentage this allocation represents of the whole advance factory programme.
§ Mr. Darling
10 advance factories have been allocated in Scotland since 1st March, 1966. Of these, six are in production and it is hoped that production will soon begin in the remaining four. Additionally, a small unit of 2,500 sq. ft. built in advance has been allocated and is in production. These allocations include one factory which was authorised in a programme dated April, 1963, and one authorised in April, 1964, and they represent, in numbers, about 7 per cent. of the advance factories authorised in Great Britain since April, 1963.
