asked the Secretary of State for Industry if he will issue a directive to the Scottish Industrial Estates Corporation to give priority to small local-based building firms which wish to participate in the construction of industrial estates such as Tweedbank.

The corporation informs me that it decided to place a single contract for a number of factories believing that this will secure economies of cost and speed in completing construction. In these circumstances I do not consider it necessary to direct the corporation to proceed otherwise.
