HC Deb 11 July 1972 vol 840 cc328-9W
Mr. James Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry how many Scottish industrial estates factories are empty in the Bothwell constituency; and how many inquiries he has received for them.

Mr. Anthony Grant

Eleven Department of Trade and Industry factories are either unoccupied or due to be vacated shortly in the six employment exchange areas into which the constituency extends. This year so far the empty factories have been brought to the attention of 54 industrialists eight of whom have visited the district.
