HC Deb 03 March 1967 vol 742 c172W
Mr. Monro

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will build advance factories in the Dumfries, Annan and Lockerbie areas, respectively, in view of the rising number of unemployed.

Mr. Darling

I am aware of the unemployment situation in these areas. My right hon. Friend has no plans at present to build advance factories there, but he will consider the needs of these areas when further advance factory programmes ate decided upon.
