asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make a statement about the delay in proceeding with the Northpress project in Inverness, in view of the public investment involved and the prospects of secure employment.

I am aware of the difficulties which have prevented Northpress Ltd. from starting a newspaper reproduction process in Inverness. These fall to be resolved by negotiation between the company and the trade unions concerned, and I understand that there are to be further discussions between the parties shortly. I hope that agreement can soon be reached.
