asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury if he will specify the persons and firms on the trade lists and specifications to whose attention, on his instructions, the claims of Scottish firms for tenders and employment were sent.
I assume that the hon. and learned Member is asking me to specify the persons and firms on the trades lists of those Departments to whose attention the needs of Scottish firms have recently been drawn. I regret that it is not possible to give this information in answer to a Parliamentary Question as the lists include many thousands of names. If the hon. and learned Member wishes to know whether a particular firm is on the trades lists of an individual Department, he may like to make enquiries of the Minister in charge of that Department.
