HC Deb 05 April 1971 vol 815 c19W
91. Mr. John Smith

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry what proposals his Department has for helping to bring additional industry to Caldercruix, Lanarkshire, in view of the proposed closure of Craig's Paper Mills.

Sir J. Eden

I am aware of the position of this mill and of the general situation in the district. It is within the new West Central Scotland special development area where the additional benefits to attract industry announced by my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer on 18th February are now available. We will continue to do everything possible to encourage suitable industrialists to take advantage of the various facilities available in North Lanarkshire.
