HC Deb 08 April 1981 vol 2 cc294-5W
34. Mr. James Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what representations he has made and what have been made to bring the Nissan-Datsun motor industry to Scotland, and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Alexander Fletcher

My right hon. Friend has ensured that Nissan's consultants, who are considering the suitability of locations throughout the United Kingdom for the proposed car plant, are fully aware of the advantages of sites in Scotland. In addition, I understand that a number of local authorities and other bodies have made direct approaches to the company in respect of particular sites.
