§ 33. Miss Herbison
asked the President of the Board of Trade when the extension at Cummins Diesel Engine Company, Shotts, will commence.
§ Mr. N. Macpherson
We are awaiting confirmation from the company of its acceptance of the detailed plans for this extension Until this is received I am unable to say when work will start.
§ Miss Herbison
Has the hon. Gentleman any idea when this confirmation will be received, and can he give me a guarantee that immediately it is received work on this extension will begin?
§ Mr. Macpherson
With regard to the second point, I would hope that that would be so. With regard to the first point, confirmation is required, of course, by the American parent company.
