asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury what steps have been taken by his Department to dispose of the whole or part of His Majesty's factory, Queensferry, in the county of Flint, to firms seeking suitable sites for industries; and whether, having regard to the large amount of unemployment along the Dee side in that county, he will consider whether His Majesty's factory could be utilised by one or other of the Government Departments?

Every endeavour has been made to sell this property by private treaty, and recently some 70 acres have been sold. The rest of the property is now in the hands of auctioneers with a view to sale by public auction. With regard to the latter part of the question, the possibility of utilising the factory for Government purposes has been fully considered, but no suitable use has been found for it.
