§ Mr. Donald Stewart
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will investigate the possible use of the anorthosite deposits in the Isle of Harris ; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Gordon Campbell
I do not think any investigation on my part is necessary. These deposits were worked until some two years ago, and the possibility of resuming operations is essentially a matter for the commercial judgment of the mining industry in the light of their assessment of the economic potential.
