HC Deb 29 July 1952 vol 504 c124W
128. Mr. Hamilton

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland which areas will not be adversely affected at all by the cuts in the educational building programme; and which areas will be only slightly affected.

Mr. J. Stuart

This Government has imposed no cuts on the educational building programme; steel shortage is, however, causing some delays.

The following areas are not likely to be affected:

Dundee; Angus; Bute; Dumfries; East Lothian; Kincardine; Kirkcudbright; Orkney; Peebles; Perth and Kinross; Ross and Cromarty; Stirling; and West Lothian.

Slight effects have been, or will probably be felt in Aberdeenshire; Argyll; Banff; Caithness; Inverness; Midlothian; Moray and Nairn; Roxburgh; Selkirk; Sutherland; Wigtown; and Zetland.
