§ Mr. Craigen
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if, pursuant to the answer of 30 January, Official Report, column 206–7, regarding the development of the west of Scotland science park, he will state the basis for the statement that the park has been operating for two years; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Allan Stewart
[pursuant to his reply, 4 February 1985, c. 429]: My answer referred to the two-year period beginning in October 1982 when the science park began to operate, with the appointment of a development manager. Marketing began nearly a year before the opening of the first units in September 1983.
