§ Dr. Dickson Mabon
A feasibility study of the Tayside region will shortly be put in hand in implementation of the plans outlined in the White Paper on the Scottish Economy, and of the Government statement last June about feasibility studies of Tayside, Severnside and Humberside.
§ Dr. Mabon
The study itself is to be carried out by consultants appointed by the Secretary of State. The Tayside Consultative Group will be closely associated with it from the outset. The Secretary of State will shortly make this appointment, it is hoped, and I have been asked by him to visit the Tayside Consultative Group and discuss the matter with it.
