HC Deb 22 October 1969 vol 788 c281W
Mr. James Davidson

asked the Minister of Technology if, in view of the failure of the Government's plans to provide employment in Inverurie to compensate for the closure of the British Railways' workshops, he will now prepare an industrial investment scheme to create, expand and sustain productive capacity there qualifying for financial support under Section 2 of the Industrial Expansion Act.

Mr. Benn

It is hoped to make an early announcement about the future of the Inverurie workshops.

The Government have already made it clear that they are prepared to look at any proposition put to them, under the Industrial Expansion Act.
