HC Deb 29 June 1971 vol 820 cc100-1W
Mr. Buchanan

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what he estimates will be the effect of the closure of the Glasgow fruit market on summer Saturdays on the price of produce passing through the market.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

I understand that last year when Glasgow Corporation opened the Market on summer Saturdays relatively little business was transacted; and that consequently it is not expected that the continuation of five-day week working through the summer months will have a measurable effect on market prices.
