HC Deb 20 January 1959 vol 598 c11W
61. Mr. Hector Hughes

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that the need continues in the city and county of Aberdeen for new industries and for the extension of existing industries; and what steps he has taken during the last three months to solve the relevant economic problems and to find full employment for those who are unemployed and who have only part-time employment.

Mr. J. Rodgers

My right hon. Friend is well aware of the continuing need to relieve local unemployment. Since 1st October, 1958, projects approved in the city and county of Aberdeen should on completion provide additional employment for 350 people, including the extension of a Government-financed factory.
