§ Mr. Hector Hughes
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is yet in a position to detail the efforts he has made during the last months to attract to Aberdeen new industries and extensions of existing industries.
§ Mr. J. Rodgers
The Board of Trade has continued in its efforts to steer industry to Aberdeen as to other development districts. It has also drawn the attention of existing firms to the assistance available under the Local Employment Act for developments which would provide additional employment.
Aberdeen was, of course, listed in the pamphlet "Expanding Industry" which was sent to 45,000 industrialists when the Act came into force.
