§ Mr. Redmond
To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement on the contacts between the Scottish Development Agency and the NUCOR Corporation relating to steel production in Scotland.
§ Mr. Allan Stewart
[holding answer 12 June 1992]: Scottish Enterprise, replaced the Scottish development agency on 1 April 1991. My Department, in co-operation with Scottish Enterprise, remains in contact with NUCOR regarding its possible interest in locating in Scotland. The decision is one for NUCOR to take, but naturally we would welcome any proposals which would lead to the continuation of steelmaking in Scotland.
