HC Deb 14 June 1968 vol 766 cc71-2W
Mr. Malcolm MacMillan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland, what plans the Highlands and Islands Development Board has for the development of fish processing in Stornoway.

Mr. Ross

I am glad to say that I have approved the proposals made by the Board that it should acquire the Herring Industry Board's fish freezing factory and cold store in Stornoway and operate this in an effort to strengthen and develop a shore-based fishing industry in the Outer Isles. The position will be reviewed in the light of operations within a period of three years.
