§ 24. Mr. Gordon Wilson
asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will ask the National Economic Development Council plastics processing sector working party to investigate the prospects of the plastics industry in Scotland in the light of the decision to bring feedstock gas ashore in Scotland.
§ Mr. MacGregor
The NEDC plastics processing sector working party and the petrochemicals E.D.C. have already recognised the significance of this decision and the potential opportunities involved. It was discussed at a joint meeting of the two groups this January, and I know that they will continue to take a close interest in this development.
