§ Mr. Craigen
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland what is the extent of involvement by the Scottish Development Agency in the Glasgow St. Enoch square development; and what efforts are being made to involve Scottish construction companies in the development.
§ Mr. Lang
The development is taking place on a site which was assembled by the Scottish Development Agency and then transferred to the developers on terms which give the agency a stake in the development's future success. Scottish companies have won a significant number of contracts so far and the project is being handled in such a way as to enable all Scottish companies which are interested to tender for specific jobs. The eventual success of such tenders will of course depend on price and quality.
