The package of support measures for the textile sector announced by the Secretary of State for Trade and Industry on 6 June did not allocate resources to particular parts of the UK. Resources will be allocated as the industry and support agencies come forward with good projects which meet the necessary criteria in the various initiatives. The Scottish Executive and Enterprise Networks are working closely with the DTI to establish how the Scottish textile industry can take full advantage of these new initiatives. The Scottish Textile Forum will also be consulted as these plans are drawn up.
