Mrs. Ewing

asked the President of the Board of Trade, of the establishments employing 93,000 persons set up since 1945 by non-Scottish manufacturing companies, how many of the companies are English companies, United States companies and companies of other countries, respectively; and if he will break down the 93,000 into constituencies.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

About 320 establishments in manufacturing industry, now estimated to employ about 100,000 people, have been set up in Scotland by non-Scottish firms since 1945. Of these about 80 have been set up by United States firms, about 20 by other overseas firms and the rest are of English or Welsh origin. I regret that the information requested in the latter part of the Question is not available.
