HC Deb 07 December 1994 vol 251 c277W
Mr. Butcher

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what assessment he has made of the compliance of the second application of assistance from Bell Woven Brakel to set up a woven label factory in Dunoon with his Department's criteria for such grant assistance; and if, as part of this application, he will examine the potential impact of the grant on existing woven name tape manufacturers in the United Kingdom.

Lord James Douglas-Hamilton

Bell Woven Brakel received financial assistance from Highlands and-Islands Enterprise, the Government's economic development agency for the highlands and islands. Consideration of individual assistance cases is a matter for the enterprise body and I have asked the chairman to provide my hon. Friend with the information requested.
