HC Deb 01 February 1972 vol 830 c85W
Mr. Ron Lewis

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what were the offers made, and by whom, for the sale of the State public houses in the Gretna area; what was the valuation placed upon them; who were the applicants for the properties; and for what price were they finally disposed of.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

I do not propose to reveal information about individual premises, offers and the prices obtained for them since this would be a breach of commercial confidence. As indicated in the proceedings on the enabling Bill, it is the Government's intention to make available to Parliament at the appropriate time or times information regarding the proceeds of sale of State Management properties.
