Mr. Robert Taylor

asked the Secretary of State for Industry whether any public funds have been invested in Barry Staines Ltd., formerly Tayside Floorings Ltd., and, if so, what is the current value of the investment.

This was published in "Trade and Industry" on 15th April 1977. It is not possible in the present circumstances of the company to estimate the current value of this loan.
