§ Mr. Ross:
I have received many representations supporting in general terms the establishment of an aluminium smelter at Invergordon. I have also received a copy of the resolution supporting the Alcan proposal based on a coal-fired power station which the Scottish Area of the National Union of Mineworkers have sent to my right hon. Friend the Prime Minister. The N.U.M. has been informed that this and the other proposals for smelters are being carefully considered, but that no decision has yet been reached.
