§ Mr. Shepherd
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether it is his intention to participate in the financing of a plant in Scotland to fabricate and galvanise transmission line towers; and, if so, if he will indicate the location of the project, the scale of his own proposed participation and that of other participators.
§ Mr. Gregor Mackenzie
In all contacts and negotiations with officials concerning assistance under Section 7 of the Industry Act 1972, inquirers and applicants are assured that their interest and details of their proposals will be treated in strict confidence. I regret, therefore, that the information asked for cannot be given.
