HC Deb 11 March 1987 vol 112 c240W
13. Mr. Lambie

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on the employment prospects in the five Scottish new towns.

Mr. Lang

Recent decisions by a number of companies suggest that over 4,000 permanent jobs will be created in the new towns in the next few years. The most notable recent example is the decision by Kymmene-Stromberg to set up a paper mill in Irvine new town.
