HC Deb 23 April 1996 vol 276 c119W
Mr. Stewart

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will direct Scottish Enterprise to make an assessment of the impact on the Scottish economy of the proposal by Powergen to construct a gasfield generating unit at Gartcosh. [25313]

Mr. Michael Forsyth

I understand that any sale to PowerGen of land at Gartcosh currently owned by Scottish Enterprise would take place on commercial terms. There is no question of subsidy by Scottish Enterprise of the proposed project and there is consequently no requirement on Scottish Enterprise to undertake an impact assessment.
