asked the President of the Board of Trade the reason for the refusal of his Department to grant a licence for the establishment of the proposed carpet factory at Creetown, Kirkcudbrightshire.

I am looking into his matter and will write to the hon. Member as soon as possible.

Is the hon. Gentleman aware that this refusal caused widespread dissatisfaction amongst a number of people who had confidently looked forward to this industry being established; and will he convey this to the right hon. Gentleman and ask him to reconsider it?

We are quite aware of that. We have sent an urgent message to the Regional Controller.
