Mr. Eadie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland how many new industries have been sited in the new town of Livingston in 1968; what is their present labour force, male and female; and what is the planned ultimate labour force, male and female.

Mr. William Ross

Three new industrial firms have been sited in Livingston this year. Their present labour force is 43 men and 10 women with prospects of employing 95 men and 35 women. The planned labour force for a new town of this ultimate size would be of the order of 32,000, about one third of which would be women.
