asked the President of the Board of Trade why he finds it difficult to attract North American industrialists to Scotland, in view of the fact that production costs there are much less than in the United States of America and Canada, that profitable European sales can be made at selling prices up to 40 per cent. below those prevailing in North America, and that skilled and unskilled labour is available.
I thank my right hon. Friend for that reply. Is he aware of Scotland's great need for diversification of industry and of her very serious unemployment, which is almost double that of England? Is he aware that sometimes in constituencies like mine there are 20 men unemployed to one man unemployed in London?
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that all those North American firms which have come to Scotland have expressed themselves delighted with the quality of labour and workmanship which they get there? Can he take steps to make that known to other firms wanting to set up businesses in Europe?
