HC Deb 23 March 1999 vol 328 c132W
Mr. Öpik

To ask the Secretary of State for Scotland what measures his Department has taken to assist the UK timber industry since May 1997; and if he will make a statement. [77202]

Mr. Macdonald

Scottish Office support to assist the timber industry in Scotland is channelled through the Enterprise Network. I have asked the Chairmen of Scottish Enterprise and Highlands and Islands Enterprise to write to the hon. Member.

From 1 July 1999, this will be a matter for the Scottish Parliament.
