ABSTRACT
The article deals with the program of the Scottish Forestry Commission regarding timber production and the improvement of Highland economy in relation to the Whitehall policy and the Fort William Pulp Mill from 1945-63. Hydro-electricity was introduced as an attempt to improve the Highland economy. Scottish officials and their Treasury and Board of Trade counter-parts argued on whether public investment such as the Fort William Pulp Mill could be seen as economic or social policy.
