HC Deb 12 January 1971 vol 809 cc35-6W
Mr. Sillars

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if it is Her Majesty's Government's policy not to allow the eventual location at Hunterston of an integrated steelworks.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

In the letter which I sent to Ayr County Council on 9th December, 1970, regarding the zoning of land at Hunterston I said that if the British Steel Corporation were to submit a planning application for such a development the way would remain open for the Corporation to establish to my satisfaction that the steelworks might be sited there.
