asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will make assistance available to the Cooperative Wholesale Society (Furniture Manufacturing Shieldhall, Govan, Glasgow) in order to maintain its operation in Govan; and if he will make a statement.

The society is, therefore, fully aware of the availability of Government support for investment, but has not made any further request for assistance.
