asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will specify the particular industries in Scotland which will be eligible for the new investment grants.

I would refer my hon. and learned Friend to the proposals contained in the Industrial Development Bill, which was introduced on 4th May and to the announcement which my right hon. Friend the Chancellor of the Exchequer made on 3rd May about extending the scope of the investment grants scheme to include construction.

Does the Minister not realise that my Question asks for details of specific industries? To enable industrialists to organise their productivity and exports accordingly, will he now particularise them?

I am afraid that I cannot anticipate the Second Reading debate on the Bill, which will take place next week.
