HC Deb 05 February 1957 vol 564 c230
30. Mr. Ross

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he will reinstitute the Scottish Economic Conference.

Mr. N. Macpherson

My right hon. Friend sees no occasion at present for a further Conference.

Mr. Ross

Is the Joint Under-Secretary of State aware that there is some feeling in Scotland that the overall economic responsibilities exercised by the Secretary of State on behalf of the House of Commons have been taken over by the House of Fraser?

Mr. Macpherson

That seems to be rather a different question from the Question on the Order Paper.
