§ Mr. MacCormick
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what steps he is taking to make provision for continued employment in the Dunoon area in the event of a cessation of activities at the oil production platform site at Ardyne.
§ Mr. William Ross
I keep the future employment situation in all areas of Scotland under constant review. The yard in question is, however, in a good position to tender for the next round of platform orders expected this year.
