HC Deb 11 June 1980 vol 986 cc182-3W
25. Mr. Bruce-Gardyne

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether lie has yet concluded his consideration of the future support from public funds for Stonefield Vehicles; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

My right hon. Friend has made it clear that public funds should not alone attempt to finance the very substantial promotion and marketing support which is required by Stonefield Vehicles and that a private sector contribution should be sought. Efforts to secure private sector participation are continuing.
