HC Deb 31 May 1968 vol 765 cc289-90W
Mr. Emrys Hughes

asked the President of the Board of Trade when the advanced factory at Girvan was completed; how long it has been untenanted; and, in view of the problem of unemployment in the area, what steps he has taken to find a tenant.

Mrs. Gwyneth Dunwoody

Since its completion in March, 1967, the factory has been drawn to the attention of 35 firms, eight of whom have visited it, but no firm application has been received. An incoming occupant would be eligible to be considered for the special incentives mentioned in my right hon. Friend's reply to my hon. Friend the Member for Con-way (Mr. Ednyfed Hudson-Davies) on 14th November last.—[Vol. 754; c. 84–86.]
